Dubai’s move for green mobility is gaining momentum as public charging infrastructure augments and EV adoption rises among residents.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) announced that it targets to develop the city’s network of public charging stations by 170 percent in less than three years.

By 2025, EV green charging stations in Dubai will raise from the present number of 370, with over 680 charging points to 1,000 stations.

Dubai’s step to green mobility received a strong boost in 2015 when DEWA introduced its EV Green Charger Initiative as part of its Green Mobility Strategy 2030.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, Managing Director and CEO of DEWA stated, “Together with other Dubai entities and key stakeholders, DEWA has drawn out a strategic blueprint that reimagines the future of urban transportation in the emirate.”

He said, “As part of this broader framework, DEWA is working to create an accessible world-class infrastructure to advance the adoption of eco-friendly transportation. By encouraging electric vehicle usage, DEWA’s EV Green Charger Initiative contributes to reducing carbon emissions and fosters sustainable practices throughout Dubai.”

As per Global Electric Mobility Readiness Index published in 2022, demand for EVs in the UAE is reflected to increase at a compound annual rate of 30 percent between 2022 and 2028. The report Index positioned the UAE as eighth globally regarding electric mobility readiness.

DEWA has deployed more than 370 charging stations throughout Dubai in fuel stations, public parking chargers, wall chargers, and Dewa customer happiness centres and shopping malls. The stations avail multiple charging alternatives, comprising super-fast, fast, direct current, public parking, and wall chargers.

The authority stated that DEWA’s efforts to boost the emirate’s public charging infrastructure have also yielded the minimisation of 236,700 tonnes of carbon emissions as of April 2023.
