Around 680 Charging Stations Will Be Installed In Dubai By 2025 

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) aims to grow Dubai’s network of public charging stations by 170% in less than three years. If all goes as planned, by 2025, we will have around 1,000 Green charging stations in Dubai. At Present, the count is 370, and over time, 680 additional charging stations will be installed across Dubai. This move is in line with the vision of His Highness Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, Vice President and Prime Minister of the UAE and Ruler of Dubai, to transform Dubai into a global green-economy hub.


As per DEWA, Dubai’s Clean Energy Strategy 2050 and Net Zero Carbon Emissions Strategy 2050 seek to generate 100 per cent of its power from clean energy sources by 2050. In fact, the number of Electric Vehicle owners has increased from 14 in 2015 to more than 11,000 by the end of May 2023. The figure is expected to double in the near future.
