HELPING KENYA TO SPEED UP EFFORTS TO TRANSITION TO E-MOBILITY

To encourage more drivers to switch to EV transportation choices, the Kenyan electric mobility startup Roam formerly known as opibus is developing mobile charging centers for electric motorcycles.In Kenya, a significant pollution issue has arisen as a result of the popularity of gas-engine motorcycles. According to Africa News, "Air pollution alone was responsible for around 5,000 premature deaths in Kenya in 2019."
Roam's new electric motorbike charging facilities aim to contribute to the solution. Roam has started building hubs where owners of electric motorcycles can rent batteries, recharge their own batteries, and even obtain repair from qualified mechanics.

    Helping Kenya to speed up efforts to transition to e-mobility is a commendable initiative. Transitioning to electric transportation is critical for reducing carbon emissions and combating climate change. Kenya, like many other developing countries, faces significant challenges in adopting e-mobility, including high costs, limited infrastructure, and technology barriers. By providing assistance and support, such as funding, technology transfer, and capacity building, Kenya can accelerate its transition to e-mobility. This can have multiple benefits, including reduced pollution, improved air quality, and increased energy efficiency. Furthermore, e-mobility can also create job opportunities and stimulate economic growth. Collaborative efforts to support Kenya's e-mobility aspirations can contribute to sustainable development, environmental conservation, and a cleaner future for the country.

      This is a really good development, electrical 2-wheelers have a potential for billion people around the globe. Cars are "eating up" up to 10m2 whereas 2-wheelers only occupy a fraction of city space

          opibus bus having invested in electric motorcycles and matatus has really prompted other hailing companies like Uber to consider the same for their public transport cars

            E-mobility is a promising solution to combat climate change, and we should explore its potential to create a sustainable transportation system.
