Clean Energy International Private Limited, a Nepali start-up working on electric two and three-wheelers, leads a consortium of Nepali companies involved in electric mobility [Abhiyantriki Karmashala, Aeloi, and Electric Vehicles Association of Nepal (EVAN)]. The objective of the consortium is to design, develop and deploy an improved and sustainable Safa Tempo. Structured on three phases, the project will initially design, develop, and demonstrate clean and sustainable Safa Tempo. Secondly, partner companies will improve the new Safa Tempo through trials. Finally, the consortium will develop a roadmap for scaling up production.

 

“CEI has always been innovating the zero emission public transportation and has always stick on its mission to set Nepal as zero tail pipe emission mostly in southern region of Nepal.  With the vision of clean green and clean Nepal, CEI hopes to create Nepal as an EV hub centre and set a perfect example for the rest of the world.”

Bharat Poudel, CEO/Founder

 

Achievements 

Clean Energy International is manufacturing electric two and three wheelers in two cities in Nepal, Kathmandu and Birgunj. It has developed several types of electric vehicles: e-rickshaw, e-mini pick-up, e-school van, e-street food van. CEI has manufactured and sold more than 1000 units of electric tuk-tuk with different applications. CEI is also pioneer in repairing electric three-wheeler and two-wheeler in Nepal. CEI is one of the oldest electric scooter assemblers in Nepal and has been able to set a good benchmark for electric scooter in Nepal.

Aiming to demonstrate that modified Safa Tempo can be deployed in a broad array of applications, the consortium is exploring alternative application of the three wheelers. Thanks to new possible applications like tourism (the modified Safa Tempo will replace the gas powered municipal transport and tourist sight-seeing vehicles), delivery and garbage collection, the project will create new opportunities for Safa Tempo drivers – half of which are women.

The project will be implemented by a consortium of Nepali companies involved in electric mobility and the association of electric vehicle entrepreneurs in Nepal. The consortium will be led by Clean Energy International Private Limited, a local startup working on electric two and three-wheelers. Other members of the consortium includes (i) Abhiyantriki Karmashala, another start-up working on electric vehicles and fibre glass bodies for vehicles, which will provide technical assistance in vehicle design and development (ii) Aeloi, a Nepal based fintech social enterprise that is accessing Safa Tempo owners to have access to affordable finance through bijulipower.com and other tools, will provide support in establishing and operating the E-mobility Revolving Fund and (iii) Electric Vehicles Association of Nepal (EVAN), which represents the electric vehicle industry in Nepal, will mobilize its members, many of whom are Safa Tempo entrepreneurs, to scale up the outputs of the project. It will also be involved in policy advocacy.
