EBRD issues tender for consultant to advise on Egypt’s electric vehicle strategy

The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) put out a procurement notice on Friday for a consultant to work alongside on drafting Egypt’s E-mobility strategy, which will serve as a precursor to the introduction of electric vehicles (EV) in the country. The strategy will focus, among other things, on understanding infrastructure needs for rolling out EVs, as well as identifying investment opportunities for the both the private and public sectors. “EBRD would like to investigate the potential market for the acquisition of EVs for public fleets/car sharing/taxis/vans… Furthermore, the Bank would like to develop a short to medium-term action plan to pilot the roll-out of EVs.” The strategy will also include policies to promote the use of electric vehicles, and involve a study on the impact of introducing EVs on the local energy market. The project is expected to start around mid-November and take five months to complete.
