EV Green Charger Initiative to establish the infrastructure and build electric vehicle charging stations:
Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) announced in October 2018, the completion of the second phase of its EV Green Charger initiative, which included the installation of an additional 100 EV Green Charger stations for charging electric vehicles across Dubai. With the completion of this phase, the total number of charging stations in Dubai has been doubled from 100 to 200. This initiative contributes towards DEWA's efforts to encourage the use of environmentally friendly electric vehicles in the emirate in order to reduce carbon emissions and support sustainable modes of transport in Dubai. The EV Green Charger Initiative was launched by DEWA in 2015 in support of the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make the emirate the smartest and happiest city in the world.
DEWA has successfully installed 240 electric charging stations in different areas of Dubai such as government offices, airports, petrol stations, shopping malls, commercial offices, clinics and hospitals, residential complexes and establishments.
* 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
