Green Charging in Dubai has significantly impacted the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and hybrid electric vehicles (HEVs) in the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
In 2022, 350 green chargers will be installed. According to Gulf News the UAE has greatly expedited the development of EV charging infrastructure. Dubai currently has 620 charging stations although some of them are privatized.
According to a report by the official news agency WAM, Dubai will produce 15,100 electric vehicles and 13,500 battery-electric vehicles in 2022. As part of its 74th meeting, the Dubai Supreme Council of Energy (DSCE) discussed plans for expanding Dubai’s electric vehicle charging network.
The Board of Directors of the Roads and Transport Authority (RTA) authorized a plan to convert all taxis in Dubai (Dubai Taxi and private company taxis) to hydrogen-powered cars by 2027.
Dubai’s Supreme Council of Energy has a Green Economy agenda that aligns with this plan.
RTA’s Director-General and Board Chairman, Mattar Al Tayer, stated:
This plan to turn taxis into eco-friendly vehicles – as directed by His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice-President, Prime Minister, and Ruler of Dubai – is part of the UAE’s mission to reduce energy consumption and promote sustainability. The RTA has taken it upon itself to contribute to this vision, aiming to craft a safe and clean atmosphere for the city that lives up to its reputation. This move supports the Dubai Government’s attempts at introducing green cars and creating an environmentally conscious environment.
As of now, 72% of Dubai’s taxi fleet, or 8,221 vehicles, are eco-friendly. This accomplishment coincides with maximizing energy efficiency, promoting a sustainable environment and establishing Dubai as a pioneer in green mobility.
