Electric Cargo Bikes “Made in Ghana” – Contributing to the Transformation of Ghana’s Transportation
As of: September 2021
Population growth, urbanisation, economic development and the resulting high traffic volumes lead to an increase in greenhouse gas emissions and a deterioration in air quality. Electric mobility and a change in mobility patterns of people has the potential to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. Following a circular economy approach, the project establishes local value chains for the production and operation of electric cargo bikes. Further key measures include the set-up of solar-powered charging stations, the creation of green jobs and technical and vocational trainings in the sector of electric mobility. In close cooperation with local and national stakeholders, the project aims at integrating electric cargo bikes into existing transport systems and supporting policy development while using a social entrepreneurship approach to create a multiplier effect both locally and in neighbouring countries.
