Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has installed 15 electric vehicle (EV) green charger stations at Expo 2020 Dubai‘s Opportunity, Sustainability and Mobility pavilions.

The green chargers will serve visitors with electric vehicles at Expo 2020 Dubai. DEWA has installed five green chargers at each pavilion, which is enough to charge 30 EVs at any one time.

HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, managing director and CEO of DEWA, said the project at Expo 2020 Dubai is part of plans to make Dubai the world’s smartest and happiest city.

“As the official sustainable energy partner of Expo 2020 Dubai, DEWA has allocated AED 4.26 billion to support infrastructure projects for electricity and water networks at the exhibition, using the latest smart systems,” he said.

DEWA is also installing two additional green charger stations at the Expo 2020 Dubai office. The company has installed more than 300 green chargers across Dubai, offering a free service for non-commercial EV owners.

“It will also supply Expo 2020 Dubai with clean energy from the Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum Solar Park, the largest single-site solar park in the world,” Al Tayer added.

Efteling, the biggest theme park in the Netherlands, has opened the largest charging park for electric cars in Benelux in collaboration with Eneco eMobility.

Last year, Gardaland Resort partnered with Enel X to add eight charging points for electric vehicles, as part of the attractions’s commitment to sustainability.

Expo 2020 Dubai runs from October 1, 2021 to March 31, 2022. Ain Dubai, the world’s tallest and largest observation wheel, is also set to open on October 21.
