By offering various offers and subsidies along with tax exemptions to encourage people to adopt electric vehicles, Kenya has developed a number of initiatives and action plans to increase the number of electric vehicles on the road. This will increase demand for the country’s market for the infrastructure needed to charge electric vehicles.
The growth of the market for electric car charging infrastructure will also be fueled by an increase in FDI and government spending as well as a rise in environmental consciousness.
The Kenya EV charger market accounted for $XX Billion in 2021 and is anticipated to reach $XX Billion by 2030, registering a CAGR of XX% from 2022 to 2030.
In Nairobi and Nakuru, Kenya Power will set up EV charging stations. Kenya Power has announced the deployment of charging stations all around the nation. The effort will begin in the air-polluted areas of the nation’s capital Nairobi and Nakuru County.
Kenya Power, an electrical distribution firm, seeks to promote sustainable mobility in Kenya by installing nationwide electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The project’s initial beneficiaries will be the cities of Nairobi and Nakuru.
An electric minibus traveling 200 km (at 120 kWh) per day in Nairobi is estimated to use only 2,400 Kenyan shillings in electricity, according to Kenya Power, making their alternative more affordable for drivers.
As the transition to clean transportation gains traction, Kenya Power will begin building electric charging stations for households, businesses, and the general public nationwide.
In order to pilot the charging stations, the State-owned power utility is looking for a company to create an e-mobility network infrastructure system (ENIS) in Nairobi and Nakuru.Due to the requirement for electrical supplies for motorists, Kenya, like the rest of the globe, is striving for clean mobility to reduce environmental pollution from fossil fuels.
Kenya Power is at the center of this transition.The public utility has released a request for proposals, requesting bidders to create the infrastructure that would also enable users to pay with credit and M-Pesa, much like at conventional gas stations.
