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.

This 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.

“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.”

“Signing the MoU with Parkin to install EV Green Charger stations in several prime locations managed by Parkin aligns with our shared vision to support the Government’s efforts to enhance the EV infrastructure and provide easy access to charging facilities using the latest innovative technologies to reduce charging time,” Al Tayer added.

Ahmed Bahrozyan, Chairman of Parkin’s Board of Directors, said that, “The visionary partnership between DEWA and Parkin is an important first step in our EV journey, directly supporting the ambitions of Dubai’s Green Mobility Strategy 2030 and Dubai Economic Agenda D33. We look forward to collaborating closely with DEWA on the development, implementation, and enhancement of EV charging infrastructure across Dubai with a clear focus on world-class facilities alongside a high-quality customer experience, serving the strategic and social objectives of the Emirate.”
