DEWA becomes a core member of CharIN

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority PJSC (DEWA), is the exclusive electricity and water provider in Dubai, the United Arab Emirates. Its vision is to become a globally leading sustainable innovative corporation. DEWA will join the Charging Interface Initiative (CharIN) as a Core member from January 2023. This membership will allow DEWA to further build relationships in global activities related to the Electric Vehicles (EV) including contributions within the Association’s framework, as well as support in setting the industry standard for electric vehicle charging systems.

DEWA is ramping up the roll-out of EV charging stations in Dubai, providing innovative and sustainable transport solutions in the Emirate. As an industry leader, DEWA launched the EV Green Charger Initiative in 2014 to support the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to make Dubai the happiest and smartest city in the world. The initiative is also helping to achieve the Dubai Green Mobility Strategy 2030, promoting green transportation.

The initiative encouraged the development of the first public charging infrastructure for EVs in the region. In developing the initiative, DEWA took into consideration best practices and lessons learned from similar initiatives worldwide, as well as the challenging local climatic conditions. DEWA’s charging stations are compliant with a higher operating temperature to ensure full functionality.

DEWA previously launched a series of free charging incentives on its network to further encourage green mobility within the city. In addition, it has launched the Dubai EV Community Hub, which aims to increase EV adoption by centralizing information about the latest developments in the EV landscape of Dubai.

DEWA is also researching and testing emerging technologies in mobility such as ‘Vehicle to Grid’ (V2G), autonomous mobility, mobile charging, and inductive charging. Moreover, DEWA is constantly enhancing its public charging network and studying the latest technologies in green mobility.

Through involvement in CharIn community, DEWA will participate in the development of new technologies, improve efficiency, reduce costs of charging, increase charging speed, reduce charging times, and accelerate mainstream EV adoption.
