KenGen & National Oil Corporation of Kenya in partnership to install E-vehicle charging hubs.

Power producer KenGen plans to collaborate with the National Oil Corporation of Kenya (NOCK) to install electric mobility charging infrastructure at some of the latter's petrol stations.
Speaking during an e-mobility stakeholder briefing on Tuesday Mr David Muthike, KenGen’s general manager of strategy and innovation said one of the challenges facing the transition to e-mobility was charging infrastructure and where to put them.
KenGen had earlier told the Business Daily it plans to install 30 new charging stations in six towns in the next three years to add to the existing two charging stations piloted in Nairobi and Naivasha.
“We aim to roll out charging infrastructure and an issue we have noted is the space; where do we get space to put them? So we will be talking to National Oil Corporation to put charging infrastructure in some of their petrol stations,” said Mr Muthike.
“We will also be going out soon. So when you see an expression of interest from KenGen asking the public to give us space, or lease property just know it’s part of our strategy to roll out the 30 charging stations.”
Data from the Kenya National Bureau of Statistics shows that Kenya expects an electric vehicle (EV) penetration rate of 5 per cent per year for the next five to six years.

      I am proud of the steps my country is taking towards combating air pollution by fossil energy driven vehicles. The smoke and fumes produced by these vehicles is a cause of very many illnesses.

                A good move that will encourage the buying of EVs

                  Whilst KRA continues to regard electric vehicles as "luxury"... change KRA and NEMA then the points will make alot of sense.
