DEWA: The EV - Green Recharge Initiative

As part of the Green Economy for Sustainable Development initiative, the UAE seeks to become a successful model of the green economy; to enhance the country's economic competitiveness and environmental sustainability for the benefit of future generations.

DEWA is taking a leading role in the pursuit of achieving this initiative, demonstrated by the recent ‘Green Recharge Initiative’. At the end of 2015, DEWA completed the roll-out of the region’s first Electronic Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, consisting of over 100 EV charging stations installed across Dubai. These EV charging stations will enable electric vehicles to become a mass consumer car choice rather than a niche choice.

This initiative demonstrates the UAE’s commitment to promoting the transition towards sustainable energy, to lower carbon emission levels, and creating a healthier future for the country.
