Nigeria Fuel Subsidy Removal: Time for Electric Mobility?

Currently in Nigeria an E2W is up to 21 times cheaper to drive compared to ICE 2W while it was 8 times cheaper before the removal of the fuel subsidy.What does the removal of fuel subsidies in Nigeria mean for the future of electric mobility in the country?

In this technical brief, jointly presented by Africa E-Mobility Alliance and Clean Tech Hub Nigeria, we explore the profound implications of this policy change on the trajectory of transportation in Nigeria. The technical brief provides an analysis of how electric mobility can gain significant traction and shape a sustainable future for Nigeria’s transportation sector.

Kenya E-mobility Tariff Review

In February 2023, the Kenya Power Lighting Company PLC (Kenya Power) applied for a tariff review to Kenya’s energy regulator, EPRA. A significant aspect of the initial application was the proposed special tariff for electric mobility. As a prominent stakeholder in the e-mobility ecosystem, Kenya Power has been actively promoting e-mobility and recognizing it as a critical area that will sustain profitability and increase shareholder value.

In response to the approval of the proposed e-mobility (EM) tariff, the Africa E-mobility Alliance held a virtual meeting on April 4th 2023 with different e-mobility stakeholders within and outside of Africa to discuss the new tariff and what it means for the Kenya E-mobility industry, which currently has 1,350 registered vehicles on the road and 35 e-mobility companies operating in the country
