Accelerating the electric vehicle sector in Africa

Watch Energise Africa with representatives from the Carbon Trust, Mobile Power, Zembo & Bisedge for an interactive online discussion to discuss the growing e-mobility sector in Africa and why investing in its continued growth is critical to lives, the environment and the economy.

Our panel of experts discussed the benefits of the continent’s switch to electric transport in relation to several of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), including health, gender equality, poverty, economic growth and climate action. 

We learned about the Powering Renewable Energy Opportunities (PREO) Programme, supported by the IKEA Foundation and UK aid, and delivered by the Carbon Trust and Energy 4 Impact, which stimulates energy demand in rural Africa as a way of creating sustainable jobs and reducing poverty through economic growth and empowering women.

We also look at the ecosystem of the current e-vehicle market, the value chain and its future projections along with its potential to create a significant social, economic and environmental impact and accelerate Africa’s net-zero journey.

We were joined by representatives from Bisedge, Zembo and Mobile Power - African businesses that aim to make the transition to electric vehicles more accessible for people in Africa, and heard case studies on what they do within the sector ecosystem and why funding grants and investment from UK investors are vital to their future success.
