Through its EV Green Charger initiative, Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has provided over 8,800 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity to charge electric vehicles (EVs) in Dubai since 2015.
This has helped EV users to travel approximately 58 million kilometres in eco-friendly vehicles and experience a 73 percent 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 31st December 2015 to 5,107 vehicles as of 31st January 2022.
DEWA’s EV Green Charger network has expanded to over 325 charging stations across Dubai, equivalent to over 560 charge points. This has supported the EV Green Charger Initiative to achieve a 97 percent Customer Happiness rating in 2021 and a 93 percent satisfaction rating for the quality of service.
