EV Green Charger Initiative to establish the infrastructure and build electric vehicle charging stations:
The Electric Vehicle (EV) Green Charger Initiative was launched in support of HH Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum’s vision to make Dubai the smartest and happiest city in the world and to promote green transportation in the city. Through this initiative, the first public charging infrastructure for electric vehicles was developed in the region. In 2015, DEWA developed and installed 100 EV Green Chargers in highly frequented areas across the city, to encourage electric vehicle adoption in Dubai. Since then, the network has expanded to nearly 300 chargers across Dubai and DEWA has launched a free-charging incentive on its network to further encourage green mobility within the city. DEWA’s EV Green Chargers are smart units which are connected through a Charge Point Management System (CPMS) with status and locations of chargers available via the DEWA website and smart app. DEWA has also launched a QR code service for its registered EV customers to allow them to start and end their charge cycles via a card-less customer experience. DEWA is also researching and testing emerging technologies in mobility such as ultra-fast charging, mobile charging and inductive charging.
* Actual charge time depends on battery depletion at start of the charging cycle, capacity of the battery, ambient conditions at the time of charging, technical restrictions by the charging system inside the car
