Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has launched the ‘Dubai EV Community Hub’ website.

The new website aims to encourage and grow electric vehicle (EV) adoption in Dubai by centralising information related to the subject.

A hub for information

According to the Dubai Media Office, the EV Community Hub website showcases the latest government strategies, targets, incentives and relevant regulations for these vehicles. Details of the latest EV models in the UAE, charging station standards, installation and locations, as well as insurance plans and green auto loans available for purchasing EVs will also be available on the information hub.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, said: “Dubai is a global logistics hub for transport. Increasing the use of electric vehicles in Dubai will help to improve air quality, reduce tailpipe emissions, noise pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. As a member of the Dubai Green Mobility Committee and the sole electricity provider in Dubai, DEWA works closely with government organisations and private stakeholders to support EV adoption within Dubai.

“The EV Community Hub website centralises information regarding EVs in Dubai. This saves time for those who are interested in eco-friendly vehicles and can support their decision-making process. It showcases the benefits of EVs as well as the incentives from entities to encourage their purchase or lease,” said Eng. Waleed Bin Salman, executive vice resident of Business Development and Excellence at DEWA.

Prioritising sustainable transport

DEWA continues to provide innovative and eco-friendly solutions to reduce emissions in the transport sector as part of the Dubai Green Mobility Strategy 2030.

DEWA’s EV Green Charger initiative has provided more than 8,800 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity to charge EVs in Dubai since 2015. It has a robust charging infrastructure for EVs across Dubai with over 325 charging stations.

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