Expression of Interest (EOI) Supply of E-Tractor project WP 16 Implements

1. Introduction

The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH is a federally owned international cooperation enterprise for sustainable development with worldwide operations. GIZ has worked in Rwanda for over 30 years. The primary objectives between the Government of Rwanda and the Federal Republic of Germany are poverty reduction and promotion of sustainable development. To achieve these objectives, GIZ Rwanda is active in the sectors of Decentralization and Good Governance, Economic Development and Employment Promotion, Energy and ICT (Information and Communications Technology).

2.Context

In Rwanda, the agricultural sector is a key factor having a tremendous impact on the country’s

economic growth. However, farmers are still employing traditional methods in their agricultural

activities that do not solve the problem of agricultural product shortage. Currently about 70 percent of

agricultural land in Rwanda is worked with manual labour and the hoe is the principal tool employed.

As the country shifts to a knowledge-based economy, the government has been introducing new

strategies to develop this sector by initiating land consolidation policies for the purpose of enlarging

the land and by enhancing the mechanized agriculture practise. In rural areas with no access to

electricity, the use of agricultural machinery is hampered not only by the lack of machinery, but also by

the lack of affordable fuels for powering them.

An electric tractor powered by solar energy and adapted to the needs of local farmers can promote

mechanization in the agricultural sector by providing a tractor that is easy to operate, applicable for

smaller plot sizes and independent of the availability of fuels. Integrated in an E-farm concept powered

by renewable energy, the E-tractor can significantly increase agricultural yields and promote rural

development. In order to develop and employ such a solution, rigorous research is needed to assess

and define the appropriate prototype, its use cases and models for energy supply. To this end, a cooperation project between Volkswagen and GIZ’s Strategic Partnership Technology in Africa (SPTA)

investigates the integration and use of electric tractors powered by solar energy into the

Rwandan agriculture ecosystem. Researchers of the College of Science & Technology (CST) of the

University of Rwanda are conducting research to support a practical evaluation of an E-tractor prototype,

particularly by the means of a farm trial at a local venue.

The objective of the farm trial is to evaluate whether an electric tractor is a viable concept for the Rwandan market and to find out what the capability of the E-tractor is with regard to typical farming activities in Rwanda. The farm trial also aims at evaluating which other benefits an E-tractor brings to the farm and whether there are significant environmental benefits related to the use of an E-tractor.
