EV Green Charger Initiative to establish the infrastructure and build electric vehicle charging stations:
The Electric Vehicle (EV) Green Charger Initiative was launched in line with the visionary goals of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai. The aim is to make Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world, and be a leading global example of intelligent urban development while promoting eco-friendly transportation. This initiative led to the creation of the region’s first public charging infrastructure for electric vehicles. In 2015, DEWA installed 100 EV Green Charges at strategic locations in the city to encourage electric vehicle adoption. Since then, the network has expanded to over 380 charging stations across Dubai, collectively capable of serving more than 700 electric vehicles simultaneously.
DEWA remains resolute in its commitment to adopting sustainable mobility solutions and exploring innovative technologies to enhance the electric vehicle sector. The EV Green Chargers are intelligently connected units through a Charge Point Management System (CPMS). Charger status and locations are accessible through the DEWA website and smart app and via 14 other digital platforms. Customers can start and end their charging system using their mobile devices by scanning a QR code at the station.
DEWA is also actively researching and testing advanced mobility technologies like ultra-fast charging, mobile charging, and inductive charging to stay at the forefront of the electric vehicle industry.
