Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has shared that its EV Green Charger initiative witnessed a 59 per cent increase in the usage of its “Green Charger” services for electric vehicles throughout 2023.

It noted that by 31 December, its initiative recorded 1,145,427 charging sessions conducted by registered electric vehicles, with a 59 per cent increase from 2022. 

DEWA provided 23419.821MWh of electricity for charging EVs in Dubai from 2015 to the end of 2023 through this initiative, powering a cumulative electric vehicle distance of 117 million kilometres.

It was shared that Dubai has seen an increase in the use of EVs since 2015, reaching 25,929 vehicles by the end of December 2023.

The number of EV owners registered under the initiative has also increased from 14 in 2015 to more than 13,959 by the end of December 2023.

DEWA noted that it has deployed 382 EV Green Charging Stations across Dubai, with many chargers having dual charging outlets. 

Four types of chargers have been installed: 

  • Ultra-Fast Charger (150 kW DC with ChadeMO and combo CCS sockets);
  • Fast Charger (43 kW AC with Type 2 Socket, 50 kW DC ChadeMO and Combo CCS Sockets; 
  • Public Charger (2 x 22 kW AC, with double Type 2 Socket); and 
  • Wall-Box (22 kW AC, with single Type 2 Socket).

Customers can also locate charging station locations through DEWA’s website, smart app, and 14 other digital platforms.

DEWA allows customers to create an EV account through its website, smart app, or the Interactive Voice System (IVR) at the DEWA Customer Care Centre. 

Customers can utilise the charging stations within an hour of vehicle registration. 

DEWA also launched the EV Green Charger User Dashboard to help customers better manage their EV Green Charger services. 

All customers, including unregistered ones, can also use the guest mode feature to charge their EVs.
