U.S. partners with VEGA to Promote Green Energy and Electric Vehicles in Sri Lanka 2022-06-16 20:22:56

The United States continues to promote sustainable energy and economic growth in Sri Lanka.  On June 15, U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka Julie Chung attended a signing ceremony for an agreement that will provide technical assistance to VEGA Innovations to help them further develop Sri Lanka’s electric vehicle sector.  The agreement, to be funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), will support VEGA Innovations’ efforts to promote the adoption of electrical vehicles, including electric “tuk tuks”.  It will also help pilot a charging network for electric vehicles and support the manufacturing of locally designed batteries and inverters.  USAID Sri Lanka’s Energy Program was launched in 2021 to help the country’s power sector become market-based, secure, reliable, and sustainable.

“The U.S. supports innovators and researchers around the world to test new ideas, take strategic risks, build evidence of what works, and advance the best solutions to some of the world’s most intractable development challenges.  In Sri Lanka, we are excited to partner with VEGA and other key private sector firms to support innovation and growth in the renewable energy sector,” said Julie Chung, U.S. Ambassador to Sri Lanka.
