Abu Dhabi Announces Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure

The release of the regulatory policy for electric vehicle charging infrastructure in the emirate was announced on Wednesday by the Abu Dhabi Department of Energy (DoE).

The policy sets out the stipulations and criteria for establishing a network of electric vehicle charging stations across the UAE capital.

A key barrier to customers purchasing EV vehicles is 'range anxiety' – in other words a concern that they will not be able to find somewhere to charge their EV when using it away from home. The policy will enable necessary investments into this EV charging infrastructure and help tackle this range anxiety. This should, in turn, also encourage consumers to purchase and use EV vehicles in the emirate.

The Abu Dhabi Executive Council approved the Low-Emission Vehicle Strategy in 2016. Formulated by the Department of Municipalities and Transport, the strategy aims to support the uptake of low-emission vehicles within the Emirate of Abu Dhabi as the world commits to a new energy paradigm.
