ELECTRIC VEHICLES

Electric Vehicles (EV) are at the centre of the evolution of public transport, private transport services and the wider energy transition towards mobility as a service. In cities, EVs significantly reduce noise, air pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions. However, EV readiness requires infrastructure planning and tariff setting to incentivise charging at times when the grid has capacity. Therefore, Cities are actively planning for the transition to electric mobility.

City of Cape Town Electric Vehicle Tariff Briefing Note

This briefing note, funded by the Friedrich Naumann Foundation for Freedom (FNF), represents an initial investigation into a potential electricity tariff structure for electric vehicles (EVs) for the City of Cape Town. It draws on international experience and local knowledge, concerns and expectations based on a review of literature and targeted interviews. This note provides recommendations for taking the discussion further but does not propose a specific tariff structure. Further development of the City’s EV strategy (in the form of the EV Framework) is needed to clarify the City’s objectives that will inform the most appropriate EV tariff.

Sustainable Energy Solutions for South African Local Government: A Practical Guide

This is the third iteration of a practical how-to handbook for local municipalities on the roll-out of sustainable energy measures. The first section focuses on governance and legislation (e.g. mandates, green procurement, institutionalising of sustainable energy concerns, etc.); the second on municipal sustainable energy initiatives (e.g. solar water heating, efficient buildings, sustainable transport, etc.); and the third on macro developments (e.g. smart grids, concentrated solar, ocean energy, etc.). Interactive icons assist in skipping between chapters. (SEA, 2017)
