Margretha Kampulu, a spokesperson for the UN Development Program (UNDP) on Wednesday said Namibia plans to put a batch of electric vehicles in the domestic market to curb greenhouse gas emissions.
Kampulu, said that one of the motives for introducing electric-powered cars into the market is to meet the challenge over greenhouse gas emissions, which contribute to global warming and climate change.
She said that the UNDP Namibia will on Friday host a launching ceremony of the Vehicle-Grid-Integration (VGI) Electric Cars project with the UNCIF Namibia to further promote the benefits of electric cars.
At the UN Climate Action Summit, Namibian President Hage Geingob presented the country’s five-year plan for reducing greenhouse gas emissions by the year 2030.
