Unfortunately your proposal is in Spanish which makes it impossible to understand for a lot of people here at ClimateCoLab or at least for me. But what I can read from the title rises the question what you are exactly focusing on? It seems you are trying to tackle a lot of different big issues at once.

Caroline, You are on the right track in focusing on lighter, more energy efficient vehicles. There are a lot of different goals in your proposal, and they are good and noble ones, and a focus on the main one (or even two), with the plan on enjoying the beneficial side effects, may be easier to successfully implement. I hope you will join the invite I sent, and pursue some disired side effects through the concept. Take your time in thinking about the potential, and in the meantime... you have my vote! Sincerely, Robert

Electric bikes are a reality in large parts of the world and certainly a great solution. Tuk-tuk bikes are widely available in Asia. This proposal tried to combine the two with the idea of local manufacturing / remodeling of the bike using plastic bottles - this technique is never really elucidated so with the evidence at hand it does not seem workable. The idea of a solar PV panel for charging the bike ON the bike is likely not workable/sensible due to weight, aerodynamics, and actual charge times. A specific study on these issues is also required.
