Dewa launches disinfection programme for its EV Green Chargers

DUBAI, May 17, 2020

Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (Dewa) has launched a new programme to regularly disinfect its electric-vehicle Green Chargers at petrol stations across Dubai, in collaboration with Emirates National Oil Company (Enoc) and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (Adnoc).
The move supports Dewa’s participation in the National Disinfection Programme.
The move comes in light of the significant increase in the number of electric vehicles in Dubai since Dewa launched the Green Charger initiative in 2014, and the positive response to its incentives. 
The Dubai utility emphasised that the health and safety of citizens and residents is one of its top priorities, as it undertakes all the necessary and precautionary measures to limit the spread of the novel coronavirus, in line with the directives of the country's leadership and the recommendations of the World Health Organisation.
"The National Disinfection Programme has been successful thanks to the concerted efforts of individuals and organisations and the awareness of all citizens, residents, and visitors who have been responsible and stayed home," remarked Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, MD & CEO of Dewa.
"Dewa has undertaken a number of precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of its customers and employees, while continuing to deliver electricity and water services according to the highest standards of availability, reliability and efficiency," stated Al Tayer. 
"We have in place a plan to regularly sterilise our facilities, according to the highest international and health standards, using high-quality approved disinfectants and sterilisers to ensure the health and safety of all staff," he added.
Dewa has installed over 240 electric-vehicle charging stations (EV Green Chargers) across Dubai. It has extended free charging until December 31, 2021 for non-commercial users registered in the EV Green Charger Initiative. 
This is exclusive to Dewa’s public charging stations and does not apply to home chargers, it added.-TradeArabia News Service
