The NAMA “Rollout of electric private passenger vehicles in South Africa” is in the state of a feasibility study. It aims at mitigating greenhouse gases by improving the national car fleet. The total for implementation of the NAMA are USD 344.7 billion until 2050, with a potential to mitigate 450 MtCO2eq in the same time frame. International help should provide a part of the financing as well as technical assistance.
The NAMA plans to introduce electric vehicles to the national private car fleet. Prototypes of wholly South African-designed electric vehicle models have been developed. It was planned that until 2015 a 10% penetration would be reached. This would increase to 27% until 2020 and 60% until 2030.
No information on the methodology to calculate the mitigation potential could be identified.
The cumulative mitigation potential is estimated at 10.6 Mt between 2011-2020, 92.3 MtCO2eq between 2011-2030 and 450 MtCO2eq between 2011-2050.
South Africa seeks funding to cover the incremental costs of the NAMA.
