Minister outlines details of National Electric Vehicles Policy


The UAE's National Electric Vehicles Policy will help the country achieve its objectives of reducing energy consumption by 40 per cent and carbon emissions by 10 million tonnes in the transport sector by 2050.

That's according to the Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, Suhail Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, who said the policy will increase the share of electric vehicles to 50 per cent of total vehicles on our roads by the middle of the century.

The National Electric Vehicles Policy, recently approved by the UAE Cabinet, aims to establish a network of electric vehicles charging stations, establishing a world-class infrastructure that will accelerate the adoption of electric and hybrid vehicles.

Developed by the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure (MoEI), the policy is an outcome of the Global EV Market transformational project.

It supports the objectives of the National Energy and Water Demand Management Program that was launched to reduce energy consumption in intensive sectors, including transport.
