We Are Boosting Financial Independence

Our products and services support our customers to make more money. Our customers (motorcycle taxi operators) report a 40% – 50% income increase compared to the petrol powered counterparts. Cost savings are attributed to reduced energy and maintenance costs. 

Customers are able to access our electric motorcycles through affordable and flexible financing (”lease to own”) facilitated by our strategic partnership with watu credit. 

The successful creation of a win-win-win ecosystem and closing of the financing cycle is our approach for a renewable energy transition. If it makes economic sense for the client, the lender and the product & service provider, the transition happens automatically.

Empowering Through Technology Transfer & Training

The DRIVe Project

  • Developing Relevant and Innovative Skills in e-mobility (DRIVe) project, implemented jointly with GIZ’s Promotion of Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Programme (PREEEP) and Employment and Skills for Development in Africa (E4D) programme, and the Ministry of Energy and Mineral Development (MEMD), funded by the Governments of Norway and Germany:

    • 104 individuals trained:
      • 14 Managers
      • 23 Technicians
      • 67 Motorcycle Operators
    • Development of 3 basic-level curricula and training manuals for managers, technicians, and motorcycle operators in the e-mobility sector.
    • Support pilot framework to monitor and evaluate green jobs and skills in the Official Development Assistance by the International Labor Organization (ILO).

Unleashing Renewable Energy Opportunities

  • E-Agriculture Project

Agr-E-Hub: Facilitating the Productive Use of Renewable Energy (PURE) through next-gen mini-grids that power agricultural mechanization services, funded by PREO Foundation and Stichting DOEN, in Northern Uganda over two years.

  • TOYOTA Mobility Foundation

Battery-powered agricultural mechanization and mini-grid ecosystem project in the Kisii Community, Western Kenya, over one year.

  • Reducing Emissions

Electric motorcycles reduce CO2 emissions by replacing petrol bikes, cutting pollution from smoke and lubricants.

CO2 emissions 101

A typical 100-150 CCM petrol motorcycle consumes about 3 liters of fuel per 100 km. Each liter of fuel is burnt into roughly 2.3 kg of CO2, the (avoidable) CO2 emissions per 100km are therefore about 7 kg. With an average annual distance covered of 50,000 km, a Ugandan “BodaBoda” emits up to 3.5t of CO2 per year.

Using electric motorcycles, we substitute these CO2 emissions with about 4 kWh of electricity and some battery degradation.

Another benefit is the reduced pollution through smoke particles and disposed lubricants.
