DEWA, Dubai’s electricity and water authority, has announced the launch of Green Charger, a faster charging option for electric vehicles. Dubai Media Office announced that the Green Charger Initiative will be building electric vehicle charging stations and promote green transportation across the city.
The new Fast Charger is designed to provide a much faster experience for customers with electric vehicles, with up to 80 percent of a battery being charged within 20 to 45 minutes.
To start using the charging stations, you can head to ENOC stations across Dubai, where you’ll find the Fast Charger, and two other types of charging stations, which vary depending on your vehicle type.
Remember that to be able to use DEWA Green Chargers, you first need to acquire your Green Charger Card from a DEWA Customer Happiness Centre. There are 14 customer happiness centres across Dubai, including in Jebel Ali, Al Quoz, Hatta, Al Wasl and Za’abeel East. You can find the full list of centres on the DEWA website here.
The Green Charger Initiative forms part of the Dubai Clean Energy Strategy 2050, which has allocated Dhs100 billion to dedicated carbon emissions reduction projects across the city. Initiatives include solar power photovoltaic panels being installed at new developments in Dubai, for which energy prices are reducing rapidly, as well as the announcement of the Green Charger.
