Through our support to the Energy Catalyst, we have helped innovators like Mobile Power develop their MOPO Hubs which provide households with energy and e-mobility solutions through a pay-per-use battery sharing platform. With support from the NAMA Facility and our partners, we are also designing a new initiative to accelerate the roll-out of e-motos in Rwanda through a range of financing mechanisms.
Through our Powering Renewable Energy Opportunities (PREO) work, we have supported a range of innovative electric mobility projects in Africa. These projects demonstrate new business models including the first ever electric motorbike manufactured in Africa, innovative approaches to charging including micro-payments and hybrid solar / grid charging infrastructure and tuk-tuk electrification. Early data from our grantees show increased income for taxi drivers who provide mobility services with electric vehicles, improving livelihoods while cleaning the air.
