Rwanda EV charging infrastructure masterplan

MOVE Mobility and partners provide technical assistance to develop Rwanda’s EV charging infrastructure masterplan

The transition to electric mobility is a promising global strategy for decarbonizing the transport sector. This sector plays a critical role in the development and functionality of a city, especially in capital cities that serve as hubs for the transport of goods and people. Today, cities produce more than 60% of greenhouse gas emissions. Rwandan cities aim to go green with a green transport with focus on electric mobility. An accessible and robust network of electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure is an essential pre-requisite to achieving this ambition.

It’s against this background that the MININFRA is considering to develop an EV charging infrastructure masterplan. The masterplan shall systematically propose strategic locations of charging points, based on sound analysis, offering a systematic approach that guides implementing authorities and stakeholders on planning, authorization, and execution of EV charging infrastructure.

Together with its partners, MOVE Mobility provides technical assistance to the development of a Rwanda EV charging infrastructure masterplan. During the first visit transport experts met with key stakeholders such as different Government officials in the City of Kigali, EVs operators in the city of Kigali and Government officials in the Satellite (Muhanga) and Secondary (Huye) cities. Satellite and Secondary cities are located in the Southern Province bordering with Burundi DRC (Southern part).
