The UN Environment Programme (UNEP) on Tuesday launched a pilot electric bikes project in Kenya's capital, Nairobi, setting the ball rolling for Africa's shift to electric mobility. The project which saw 49 motorcycles from China's Tailing Technology Group made little noise but raised much interest in Nairobi's Karura Forest aims to help policymakers assess the barriers in uptake of the much-needed technological shift towards electric bikes, and to demonstrate that the shift is feasible and within reach.
