About The Prize
Sustainable Mobility is defined as green, efficient, safe and universally accessible movement of people and goods and services from point to point.
Sustainable Mobility is a nascent sector that is gaining momentum.
Like Energy, mobility is a fundamental catalyst for any economy. Mobility solutions are a prerequisite of social inclusion by providing access to jobs and essential services such as health care and education.
Developing countries, and particularly Sub-Saharan Africa, host 98% of the 1 billion people in the world without access to transport.
Yet, an additional 187 million Africans are expected to live in cities over the next decade, suggesting that 1.5 million people will move to cities every month.
Developing countries will thus continue to confront the largest mobility challenges including access to, and safety of, mobility solutions as well as their efficiency and environmental impact.
The most impacted populations are urban and rural low-income households – population segments that also typically lack access to energy.
The nexus between energy and mobility can be leveraged to provide access to affordable and safe sustainable mobility services.
To support this sector, TotalEnergies, Enea Consulting, and Sustainable Energy for All (SEforALL) are launching the Energy Access Booster 2021 call for projects to support Sustainable Mobility entrepreneurs operating in Africa and Asia.
The 2021 edition targets projects at the development stage and companies focusing on the following sub-themes of Sustainable Mobility:
- Navigation and mapping tools
- Shared mobility
- Delivery services
- Connecting isolated communities
- Mass-movement systems
- Non-motorised transport
- Cleaner vehicles and infrastructure
Successful applicants will benefit from one or more of the following support schemes, depending on their needs and the applicable eligibility criteria:
- Financial contribution of up to $50,000 per selected entrepreneur
- Strategic advisory support
- Operational support
- Increased visibility for their venture and company
