AEMDA Strategy 2022

Africa is set to leapfrog to electric mobility thanks to a combination of ever-reducing cost of EV components, vast renewable energy resources, and a young tech savvy population keen to adopt cost-effective transport solutions. 


However, many emobility players are in (or near) the startup stage with little time and resources to contribute deeply into engaging local and national authorities about an enabling economic environment. Governments are still at the policy formulation stage without sufficient frameworks to accommodate emobility across the 5 main sectors of Transport, Energy, Industry, Environment and Finance. 


AEMDA is an industry initiative co-creating and supporting the implementation of high-impact actions across these five sectors in collaboration with public, private and non-governmental(NGO) bodies. Its vision is to support the achievement of Africa’s first one million locally-assembled EVs by 2030.


Membership at AEMDA will remain free and informal to allow organisations of all sizes and at all stages to tap into the resources and networks developed by AEMDA for the EV market across Africa. 

EV Market Barriers in Kenya: Market Survey 2021

This report informs stakeholders of the present barriers to E-mobility entry and business in Kenya. It covers six thematic areas of importation, policy, standards, standardisation, stakeholder engagement, and consumer awareness. Participating companies in this report represent more than 60% of Kenya’s E-mobility market players.

The Association for Electric Mobility and Development in Africa (AEMDA) is an industry association that is fast-becoming a representative voice for the E-mobility industry and private sector players. Its core objective is lobbying Governments and development partners towards adoption and implementation of progressive measures that make electric mobility accessible to all. By being the voice of E-mobility players, the Association is here to support private sector players in accelerating adoption of innovative, cleaner and more affordable transport solutions.
