Mubasher: Suhail bin Mohammed Al Mazrouei, the UAE Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, unveiled that the country is deploying a nationwide network of public and private electric vehicle (EV) charging stations to fully realise the potential of electric mobility.

The stations, which are equipped with the latest innovative technologies to reduce charging time, follow a national guide that aims to unify their specifications across the UAE while aligning them with world-class standards, Al Mazrouei elaborated during the Electric Vehicles Innovation Summit (EVIS2023), which kicked off on 29 May.

The minister noted: “The UAE sees a notable growth in the EV market, driven by multiple initiatives developed by the UAE government to encourage people to switch to electric vehicles. We constantly offer incentives to make electric vehicles more appealing to consumers, as well as improve the quality of our infrastructure to accommodate the increase in the number of EVs.”

Al Mazrouei highlighted: “Reaching net-zero emissions has become a collective and urgent priority that can only be achieved by decarbonizing carbon-intensive sectors.”

He pinpointed that EVs are set to be at the core of the UAE’s shift to green mobility, elaborating that “The EV market looks promising and offers unique investment opportunities.”

The official concluded: “We invite future-thinking businesses to capitalise on these opportunities. Investing in the EV industry makes a perfect environmental and economic sense.”

Al Mazroui, who inaugurated the second edition of the summit today, referred to the UAE’s commitment to becoming climate neutral by 2050 as it aims to increase the share of EVs on national roads by then.

The three-day event is featuring more than 100 speakers and over 50 conference sessions focusing on different topics relevant to the current and future landscape of e-mobility. Meanwhile, more than 50 global EVs are on display at the exhibition.

As for the summit’s two-day conference, it will bring together delegates, experts, and representatives of the mobility industry from several countries.
