Rwanda Moves to Stimulate Transition to Electric Vehicles on Local Market

By Michel Nkurunziza

The Rwanda Environment Management Authority (REMA) has called upon the public and private institutions as well as individuals to consider shifting to electric vehicles and join the effort to beat air pollution.

REMA made the call when taking delivery of its first electric vehicle that will be used to support the institution’s mandate of environmental protection.

A charging station has also been installed at the environmental watchdog office in Kacyiru.

The move is aimed to stimulate the demand of electric vehicles on the local market.
