Solomon Islands begin journey towards electric mobility

Facilitators and Participants at the validation workshop

A multi-stakeholder validation workshop was successfully held in Honiara on the Solomon Islands National Policy Roadmap for Electric Mobility.

The workshop gathered together representatives from the Government, private sector, NGOs and the academia.

More than 50% of the country’s GHG emissions comes from the energy sector from which transport sector contributes a huge portion of the total percentage.

The GHG emission from the transport sector have substantially increased over the years since year 2000 and therefore is a critical sector for Solomon Islands to achieve its climate mitigation and GHG reduction goals.

The government wants to reduce the emissions from the transport sector by promoting sustainable transport measures including promoting alternative vehicle technologies, including electric vehicles (EVs).
