As the world moves to more technological ways to improve our lives and as fuel prices rise motorists will be forced to change their transport habitats to adapt to new ways and according to Loide Nantinda, Brand Ambassador for Tesla Energy Solutions, E-mobility through public transportation, private vehicles and other means of travel will become mainstream to ease the cost burden and dependency on fuel.
“Transportation sector through Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) vehicles contributes approximately 14% of the total global Green House Gas (GHG) emissions. The aggressive targets to reduce global GHG emissions to 50% by year 2030 and 90% by 2050 have increased the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs) and opened many new opportunities in the electric mobility space,” she said.
In Namibia, E Mobility fever has already begun. With at least over a dozen Electric Vehicles on our shores and as interest for them grow, the need for Electric Charging Stations have become a necessity. An electric vehicle charging station is equipment that connects an electric vehicle to a source of electricity to recharge electric cars, neighborhood electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids.
“Tesla Energy Solutions is at the forefront in pioneering the Electric charging market locally. The chargers are already on our shores and engagement with the necessary stakeholders is in process. Some EV owners are already using this service in Walvisbay. Tesla Energy Solutions takes pride in being proudly Namibian and being of the coastal region origin as a reputable company for over 10 years now in energy-related solutions and technical support,” she said.
The company has started its EV charging station rollout awareness campaign and will officially be holding a launch event very soon.
