In the National Climate Change Action Plan (NCCAP) 2018-2022 of Kenya, electric mobility is highlighted as one of the priority actions for achieving a low-emission transport system.
This report aims at providing a quick overview and an easily accessible summary of the available electric vehicle standards in Kenya. The potential uptake of EV might be stunted if no adequate standards are in place, in particular in terms of maintaining compatibility between country jurisdictions, safety, and environmental sustainability
The report is one out of three reports (see here and here) on electric mobility by Strathmore University and Knights Energy. The study is funded by the Advancing Transport Climate Strategies in Rapidly Motorising Countries project (TraCS), a project implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH and funded through the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety and Consumer Protection (BMUV).
