The EV charging network will empower members of the public looking to make the switch to electric vehicles, building on Sharjah’s position as a beacon for sustainability in the region.

According to the statement, “Hundreds of chargers will be deployed across the emirate in strategic locations along highways and in multiple districts, covering key commercial and urban areas to make charging fast, convenient, and accessible to the public.”

“We are honored to partner with SRTA to shape the future of emissions-free mobility in Sharjah and inspire wider-scale positive climate action. Together with SRTA’s expertise, we look forward to enhancing access to EV charging infrastructure, supporting drivers in strategic locations throughout the emirate, and bridging the gap between EV charging demand and supply. By integrating robust EV charging networks into Sharjah’s infrastructure, we are solidifying the emirate’s position of leadership in sustainability and helping secure its future as a climate-positive, net-zero city.”

The new network of chargers will include fast chargers, adding to the existing EV charging infrastructure in the emirate and providing EV drivers greater peace of mind with shorter distances between charging points.

Commenting on the impact of the exclusive partnership, HE Dr. Eng. Yousif Khamis Mohamed Alathmane, Chairman of SRTA, said that, “The ‘Electric Chargers’ project, in collaboration with BEEAH, is a flagship initiative that promotes renewable and environmentally friendly energy in Sharjah. It underlines our commitment to aligning with the UAE’s rapid advancements in sustainable development applications, supporting green energy, and adhering to national strategies aimed at enhancing mechanisms for achieving sustainability in energy and climate change.”
