DUBAI, UAE: The Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Parkin, the largest supplier of paid public parking facilities in Dubai, to expand the number of the EV ‘Green Charger’ Stations in several prime locations managed by Parkin.

The initiative is a part of DEWA’s ongoing efforts to enhance sustainability, encourage the use of environmentally friendly electric vehicles (EVs), and improve customer experience by facilitating convenient vehicle charging.

The MoU was signted by the Executive Vice President of Business Development and Excellence at DEWA Waleed Bin Salman and the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Parkin Mohamed Abdulla Al Ali in the presence of the Managing Director and CEO of DEWA Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer.

Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer said “DEWA’s EV Green Charger initiative actively supports the National Electric Vehicles Policy and the Dubai Green Mobility Strategy 2030. This is achieved by encouraging the use of electric vehicles and reducing the transport sector’s carbon emissions, supporting the UAE’s efforts in climate action. Dubai has witnessed a notable increase in electric vehicles.”

“By the end of April 2024, the number of electric vehicles in Dubai reached over 30,000 vehicles. This number is expected to increase in the coming years, reflecting Dubai’s success in fostering the use of sustainable and environmentally friendly transport. The number of registered customers in the EV Green Charger initiative has also increased to over 15,000 by the end of March 2024,” he added.
