Electric Vehicle Technology has matured and growing further. Ghana, as a nation, is looking at this opportunity to transition through the establishment of the Drive Electric Initiative.  There are opportunities for Electrical Engineers to contribute to the growth of this burgeoning industry and we will want to explore further for mutual benefit and engendering growth in the nation as a whole.  Some of the issues to be discussed are as follows

- Electric Vehicle Import Policy

- Electric Vehicle Local Manufacturing

- Electric Motorbikes: Okada Transitions

- Electric Vehicle Charging: 

- Electric Vehicle Electricians/Mechanics: Kokompe/Suame Transitions.
