[Report] The Electric Vehicle Ecosystem and Associated Value Chains
Sep 1, 2021
The transport sector has been identified as a key contributor to global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions because of its reliance on fossil fuels. Of global greenhouse gas emissions, 15% can be attributed to the transport sector. There is now a global consensus that the climate targets that have been set, particularly for the automotive sector by 2030, cannot be met without EVs being incorporated into the transport system. Internal combustion engine (ICE) improvements alone are insufficient to achieve these targets.
The City of Cape Town's Department of Enterprise and Investment partnered with GreenCape to gain insights about the electric vehicle ecosystem and its associated value chains, to explore the role that the City can play in the ecosystem.
The insights from this work are published in a report that is now available for download here.
