Electric Vehicles help owners lessen fuel costs by 73% in Dubai

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has provided more than 8,800 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity through its EV Green Charger initiative to charge electric vehicles in Dubai since 2015.

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has provided more than 8,800 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity through its EV Green Charger initiative to charge electric vehicles in Dubai since 2015.

This has helped the users of electric vehicles to travel around 58 million km in their eco-friendly vehicles and experience a 73% reduction in costs of refuelling.


Since the year 2015, Dubai has seen a significant increase in electric vehicle adoption around the city, with the total number of electric vehicles that are registered increasing from 71% as of December 31, 2015, to 5,107 vehicles as of January 31, 2022.

DEWA’s EV Green Charger network has risen to around 325 charging stations all over Dubai, which is equal to around 560 points. This has further supported the EV Green Charger Initiative to acquire a 97% Customer Happiness rating last year and a 93% satisfaction rating for the quality of their services.

The MD and CEO of DEWA, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, highlighted that the continuous enhancement of the EV Green Charger initiative through the use of the recent Fourth Industrial Revolution technologies of DEWA supports the Dubai Green Mobility initiative 2030, which further encourages sustainable transport in line with the Emirate’s strategic goals in terms of air quality, sustainability, and decreasing greenhouse gas emissions.

He further added, “Dewa encourages sustainable modes of transport, such as electric vehicles, to decrease carbon emissions in the transportation sector. This helps to consolidate Dubai’s status as a global capital for a green economy and sustainable development.”

Dewa has also launched many features to boost the charging of electric vehicles on its public charging network.

Once buyers register their EV with the Roads and Transport Authority in Dubai, Dewa makes an EV Green Charger account so that they can charge their EV within an hour.


Alternatively, consumers can also make an account through Dewa’s website, smart app or IVR at Dewa Customer Care Centre.
