Moka’mwad, a citizen
collective on the move
Moka City Limited is the promoter and developer of Moka Smart City. This ENL Property subsidiary wants to incorporate the needs and aspirations of residents into shaping the community life of their chosen city.
The Moka’mwad citizen collective was established for this purpose in 2018. This citizen’s initiative is the ultimate way to build connections between existing residents and newcomers. The collective acts as a driver, catalyst and pillar for the city through organising and co-organising multi-themed activities. The goal is to encourage the emergence of innovative proposals involving all stakeholders in Moka.
Focus areas of
We are developing various soft mobility initiatives to promote zero carbon commuting:
Electric bikes and scooters have been introduced in Moka Smart City. These eco-friendly vehicles help avoid traffic jams on intra-city trips or wasted time looking for parking.
The Promenade is a large pedestrian avenue that will ultimately connect all the neighbourhoods of Moka Smart City. It is a great place for a walk with the family or outdoor relaxation. Sports enthusiasts can also use it for cycling or jogging.
What better option than carpooling to reduce CO₂ emissions, save time compared to bus travel and make new friends! We have teamed up with Commute, a Danish carpooling app, to create a dedicated interface for Mauritius. The app can be downloaded for free on Google Play Store and Apple Store.
EnVolt spearheads the ENL group’s sustainable energy development initiatives. This ENL Property start-up provides tailor-made solutions to companies that want to improve their energy self-sufficiency.
EnVolt has started by offering its services to ENL group subsidiaries. The company’s collaboration with Moka came naturally as the city has also been focusing on green energy for several years! Five rooftop photovoltaic installations were inaugurated in 2019 with EnVolt’s support. They have an annual capacity of 2,353 kWp (kilowatt-peak) – equivalent to the annual consumption of 2,000 middle-income Mauritian households. There are photovoltaic panels on the roofs of a number of buildings at Vivéa Business Park, allowing them to generate part of their daily energy needs using solar energy.
Other green energy production projects are under consideration.
