DEWA EV Green Chargers provide 8,800+ MWh of electricity to date

DEWA’s EV Green Charger network has expanded to over 325 charging stations across Dubai, serving 5,107 electric vehicles as of January 31

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) – through its EV Green Charger initiative – has provided more than 8,800 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity to charge electric vehicles (EVs) in Dubai since 2015, according to the Dubai Media Office.

This has helped EV users travel approximately 58 million kilometres in eco-friendly vehicles, experiencing a 73 per cent reduction in refuelling costs.

Since 2015, Dubai has witnessed a significant increase in electric vehicle adoption across the city, with the number of registered electric vehicles increasing from 71 vehicles as of December 31 2015 to 5,107 vehicles as of January 31 2022, reported the Dubai Media Office.

DEWA’s EV Green Charger network has grown to over 325 charging stations across Dubai so far, equivalent to over 560 charge points.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, noted that DEWA’s continuous enhancement of the EV Green Charger initiative through the use of the latest Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies supports the Dubai Green Mobility initiative 2030, which encourages sustainable transport in line with the emirate’s strategic objectives in terms of sustainability, air quality, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions.

DEWA has launched several features to facilitate the charging of electric vehicles on its public charging network. Once customers register their EV with the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) in Dubai, DEWA creates an EV Green Charger account, so they can charge their EV within one hour. Alternatively, customers can also create an account through DEWA’s website, smart app or IVR at DEWA Customer Care Centre. Registered users can also access a personalised EV Green Charger User Dashboard, where they can manage their EV Green Charger services.

All customers, including unregistered ones, can also use the guest mode feature to charge their EVs.
