Dubai’s 1000 EV Charging Stations  Commitment To Sustainability

Back in 2015, the push for green mobility gained momentum with DEWA’s EV Green Charger Initiative launch. The program is also a part of the Green Mobility Strategy 2030. In a nutshell, it aims to specifically expand the electric vehicle (EV) stations’ infrastructure.

As a whole, the initiative aims to highlight Dubai’s commitment to sustainability. In addition to reflecting efforts toward the adoption of clean transportation solutions. An official statement revealed that alongside DEWA’s efforts, RTA has also got onboard. Thus, Dubai’s Roads and Transport Authority has embarked on a long-term strategy.

Overall, DEWA’s development plan aligns with the region’s vision to transform the city into a green economy’s global hub. In extension, Dubai’s 1,000 EV Charging Stations also forms part of Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 and Dubai’s Clean Energy Strategy 2050. With the goal to generate 100% of Dubai’s power, both initiatives strive to make great use of clean energy. Additionally, Dubai’s investment in EV charging infrastructure strives to improve air quality.
