As a multi-stakeholder programme, the uYilo eMobility Programme was established in 2013 as an initiative of the Technology Innovation Agency to enable, facilitate and mobilise electric mobility in South Africa.
Supporting expertise and facilities extend across national accredited battery testing, materials testing, vehicle systems, and a smart grid ecosystem that serves as a live testing environment for interoperability of the various system components of the smart-grid.
The landscape of technology interoperability extends across renewable energy generation, second-life electric vehicle batteries integrated as stationary storage, ancillary grid services from electric vehicles, and an autonomous energy management system providing resilient infrastructure for electric vehicles aligned to international smart grid protocols.
