Dubai to expand network of EV charging stations


Dubai is expanding its network of charging stations for electric vehicles.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has teamed up with the public parking operator Parkin to expand the number of EV Green Chargers  in several prime locations.

These charging stations will be set up in parking zones and areas managed by Parkin.

The MoU was signed by Waleed bin Salman, Executive Vice President of Business Development and Excellence at DEWA, and Mohamed Abdulla Al Ali, CEO of Parkin, in the presence of Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD and CEO of DEWA, and Ahmed Bahrozyan, Chairman of Parkin.

Al Tayer said that the number of electric vehicles in Dubai reached over 30,000 by the end of April 2024, while the number of participants in DEWA's EV Green Charger programme surpassed 15,000 as of March 2024.

"Operating over 197,000 parking spaces in Dubai, Parkin's market-leading position, operational excellence and innovative technology will enable us to drive EV infrastructure growth while also offering environmental and decarbonisation benefits," added Bahrozyan.
