Under the Dubai Electricity and Water Authority’s (DEWA) Green Charger initiative, it set up over 300 Green Charger stations with more than 530 charging points across Dubai.

“Increasing the number of electric vehicles aligns with the Dubai Green Mobility initiative 2030, to encourage sustainable transport in line with the emirate’s strategic objectives in terms of sustainability, air quality, and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Until the end of May 2021, there were 3,100 electric vehicles and 9,300 hybrid vehicles in Dubai,” said Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA.

DEWA offers free charging for non-commercial EV customers registered in the EV Green Charger Initiative until December 31, 2021. This incentive is exclusively available at public charging stations and not home charging stations. Commercial customers pay 29 fils for every kilowatt-hour.

The RTA also provides incentives for electric vehicles, including free parking, reduced registration fees, and exemption from Salik tag fees.

Customers registered in DEWA’s Green Charger service meanwhile can begin charging their vehicle by using the Green Charger card or by using their smartphone to scan the QR code at the charging station.

All EV users, including international visitors, can charge their vehicles at DEWA stations irrespective of whether or not they are registered in the Green Charger initiative.

These individuals can use the “Guest Mode” feature without the need to create an account with DEWA. They can access this feature using DEWA’s app or by scanning the QR code on the charging stations.

Customers can locate the nearest charging station through DEWA’s website, it app, as well as a variety of digital map platforms like Google Maps, Apple Maps, Foursquare, Factual, What3Words and 2GIS; ride-share platforms like Careem; car navigation maps such as TomTom and Here Maps; as well as dedicated charging station platforms like Plugshare, Electromaps, and Yellowmaps.

DEWA has registered a new patent for a universal smart charging system that consists of a single cable and a plug for either AC or DC charging.
