Talking Transport Transformation: Electromobility in Sub-Saharan Africa
The global transport sector is changing – more and more countries are establishing ambitious targets in support of transport electrification. To achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement a global transformation must take place – also in regions where the implementation of e-mobility solutions seems more difficult. In Sub-Saharan Africa e.g. challenges arise from unreliable electricity systems, missing availability of capital and high dependency on an informal transport sector. For further insights into the cross-disciplinary challenges associated with transitioning towards net-zero, we had the chance to talk to Dr Katherine Collett about her interesting research work on this topic. Katherine is a Senior Postdoctoral Researcher in the Engineering Department at the University of Oxford with experience in electric vehicle integration both within the UK and Sub-Saharan Africa.
