SADC e-Mobility Scenarios: Pathways beyond the ICE age
This report is the result of a diverse range of stakeholders’ using ‘futures thinking’ tools and methods to examine the complexities of introducing electric vehicles (EVs) to Southern Africa and the tensions that might arise in creating more desired regional e-mobility futures. The SAIIA Futures project brought together a number of industry experts, government representatives, academics and thinkers using a scenario-building methodology to explore the implications of the roll-out of EVs in the SADC region. The exercise looked at the key certainties and uncertainties that the region faces in adopting EVs and developing supportive infrastructure. The resultant scenarios provide insights into plausible, probable futures taking current development trajectories into account. More importantly, they offer pathways to preferable e-mobility futures for the SADC region.
