Association for Electric Mobility & Development in Africa

The Association for Electric Mobility and Development in Africa (AEMDA) is an organization that seeks to create and sustain an ecosystem for the rapid transition to a low-carbon transport sector in East Africa powered by electric vehicles. Through building knowledge resources, availing market based networking opportunities, and establishing a seat on local/regional policymaking activities, AEMDA intends to support market players in making a positive impact on decarbonising the mobility space.


AEMDA’s ecosystem will provide member organisations in with:

  • Updated Electric Mobility Market intelligence across African countries to help them adopt growth strategies
  • A well-thought-out Working Groups framework that members can use to create progressive and self-regulating best practice initiatives
  • Availing financing options through the involvement of finance institutions, donors and governments in efforts to develop infrastructure, incentivise and coordinate high capex investments, as well as strategically integrate affordable energy supply.
  • Establishing a respectable voice with Governments, and use collective effort to lobby for policy improvements that promote a healthy balance of public and private interests. Access to Government departments (including Transport, Energy)

AEMDA is a neutral member-first association for stakeholders in Africa’s electric mobility field. The organisation’s mission is to raise awareness of development efforts undertaken by industry, academia and support organisations towards sustainable mobility solutions.


To become Africa’s leading resource for knowledge, networks, and support of electric mobility solutions.



To collaborate and support knowledge, innovations and investments around electric mobility towards low-emissions transport solutions across African economies

Our Near-term Objectives

  • Identify and document existing market barriers, and work with organisations, National and County Governments identify mitigation strategies and mitigate them.
  • Create informational products about the existing electric mobility solutions in the East Africa region to educate the end-users and Governments.
  • Identify and communicate high-impact areas that Governments and organisations can participate and influence in shaping the sustainable mobility landscape.
  • Track and report to organisations on transport, energy and finance policy development at various stages in Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda.


We are currently seeking partners to support us as we accelerate:

  1. The development of a knowledge hub that will provide market resources to both members and the general public
  2. The formation of working groups that will steer practical and actionable discussions for the EV market
  3. Putting together events to engage members and grow regional networks
  4. Bringing together outcome-driven individuals to collaborate at board and management levels in the organisation
  5. Development of advisory structures that will enable AEMDA to provide e-mobility organisations with financing and investment opportunities
