Ghana-Based Kofa's Cost-Effective Battery Solutions Powering West Africa

By Staff Writer, 04 June 2024

Ghanaian startup Kofa, leading in battery network solutions and now introducing an e-motorcycle, plans to expand its battery swapping innovation to Kenya and Togo.

Kofa focuses on affordable, customer-centric electricity powered by portable batteries like Kore2, aiming to drive a sustainable energy future in West Africa.

CEO Erik Nygard highlighted their cost-effective and versatile battery solutions, targeting a transition to clean energy with over 100,000 annual battery swaps.

“Our primary competition is petrol. Whether it’s a small business losing money because of high-priced petrol generators, or a delivery driver traveling across Accra with polluting motorbike, Kofa is trying to solve the problems that existing petrol systems are causing,” he said.

Collaborations with TAIL-G and MAX showcase Kofa's commitment to environmentally friendly transport solutions, emphasizing the role of efficient batteries and infrastructure in transforming the market away from petrol dependency.
