DEWA have already implemented 100 electric-car charging stations in Dubai (budget allocated AED 10 million). A mandate has been issued that 10% of the government investment in new vehicles will be electric and hybrid cars by 2020. Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and DEWA are already increasing this percentage. The UAE Presidents office has launched the ‘EV Accelerator Initiative’ to remove the barriers associated with introduction of EV in the UAE.
