Electrical energy and mobility issues in Africa: Which complementarities?

Abstract : Africa is on the way of a long term development to give access to energy to all citizens wherever they live, either in urban or rural areas. The energy access is mandatory to accelerate the economic growth. Besides, African citizens also require a better access to mobility, both individual or collective. African countries also encourage initiatives for clean electricity generation and clean mobility. Thus, considering the innovative smart grids solutions that are already proposed or will be proposed in the future, electric mobility means could bring distributed energy storage capacities to the electrical grids. This could mainly be true in the case of islanding areas were photovoltaic generation will likely deliver the main part of electrical energy. The present paper aims at promoting the idea of a coupled approach for energy and mobility developments considering the storage capacities of electric vehicles or electric motorcycles.
