UAE Energy selects Siemens to power nation’s electric vehicle charging corridor

DUBAI – The United Arab Emirates (UAE), one of the fastest growing economies in the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC), with Dubai as its most prestigious business city, has added more feathers to its cap.

UAE, believing that energy infrastructure is one of the ways of building and sustaining processes, development and more, has been doing a lot in a bid to be atop others in its provision and sustainability.  To move on the next level as it has to do with the encouragement of the using of electric cars, the Ministry of Energy and Infrastructure has selected Siemens Tech to power the nation’s electric vehicle charging corridor.

Sequel to this development, Siemens is powered to supply ultra-fast charging units on highways connecting the seven emirates being Abu Dhabi, Dubai, Sharjah, Ajman, Umm Al-Quwain, Fujairah and Ras Al Khaimah.

To cement this arrangement the Ministry and Siemens have signed a memorandum of understanding (MOU) to work together on sustainability and digitalisation initiatives in the energy and infrastructure sectors to move these sectors to the next level. It is also worthy to know that this electronic vehicle (EV) Charging Corridor is the first project to be delivered under the MOU framework.

The essence of selecting Siemens technology for a nationwide network of ultra-fast electric vehicle (EV) chargers is to help reduce carbon emissions, boost adoption of EVs by addressing so-called range anxiety, and lay the groundwork for a more connected and sustainable transportation system.

This among many others is part of the initiatives engineered by the ministry to make the country a better one.
