Watt hours, a unit of energy (abbreviated Wh), are used to rate the capacity of e-scooter batteries. This unit is very simple to comprehend. For instance, a battery with a 1 Wh rating can store enough energy to deliver 1 W of electricity for 1 hour.
For a given engine size, more energy capacity results in more battery watt hours, which translates to a longer electric scooter range. A typical scooter can travel 10 miles at an average speed of 15 miles per hour and has a capacity of roughly 250 Wh.
Extremely powerful scooters can travel up to 60 miles per charge and have capacities that are measured in the millions of watt hours.
The Africa Electric scooter battery market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2026, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2027.
In the cobalt-rich DRC (Democratic Republic of Congo), the private sector, regional bankers, and politicians have backed Africa’s first regional electric battery manufacturing effort.
The initiative to create a regional value chain around the electric battery industry is anticipated to begin in the upcoming years thanks to agreements made on the corporate and political levels and the establishment of a Battery Council to test out government policy.
The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank), the African Finance Corporation (AFC), the African Development Corporation (ADC), the Government of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, and other strategic investors support the project.
By bringing together leaders in the government and green energy sectors and establishing a unique financial vehicle that will mobilise private investments to develop and promote a sustainable battery value chain in the region, the newly formed Battery Council is expected to increase activities in electric battery production.
