This course will delve into electric mobility, unpacking the basic concepts of e-mobility, which kind benefits e-mobility can bring, how to plan and implement a e-transition in mobility and why it is important for a city to have a SUMP, Sustainable Urban Mobility Plan. This is the third course in the SESA capacity building programme, which aims to close the knowledge gap around renewable and smart energy solutions.
The course aims to provide a simple yet technical basis for those interested in learning more about smart and green energy solutions in transport. Experts from the SESA project have created this course giving particular attention to concrete cases and examples relevant to the African context to help understand how different energy efficient transport alternatives work.
The course is made up of 7 lessons, each one comprising one short video, a list of further readings and a quiz to test the understanding of the content. Following a passing grade from each quiz, participants will receive a certificate after completing the course. Each lesson will focus on a specific topic covering fundamental elements that make transition to a e-future in transport successful, including:
1. Introduction to E-mobility. E-mobility in the sustainable development paradigm
2. E-mobility Planning and Implementation
3. Productive use cases in EV Rural and Urban context
4. Retrofitting of fuel-based vehicles to EV and other
5. Maintenance and Safety of Evs and batteries
6. Cost-effective and suitable EV charging management
7. Electric Mobility Business Models and Exploitation Pathways
The SESA capacity building programme consists of six courses, which dive into six specific technologies investigated by the SESA project to help participants understand what alternative energy sources exist and how they work. In addition to solar energy, these technologies include clean cooking, waste to energy, electric mobility, second-life EV batteries, smart microgrid & system integration and rural internet access.
