Dubai Electricity and Water Authority (DEWA) has launched a programme to regularly disinfect its electric-vehicle green chargers across Dubai petrol stations, in collaboration with Emirates National Oil Company (ENOC) and Abu Dhabi National Oil Company (ADNOC).

The move is part of DEWA's support towards the National Disinfection Programme in the UAE, which is being performed to mitigate the impact of the COVID-19 outbreak.

DEWA has more than 240 electric-vehicle charging stations installed across Dubai and has extended free charging until 31 December 2021 for non-commercial users registered in the EV Green Charger Initiative, which was launched in 2014.

Speaking about the authority's initiatives to combat the pandemic, Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer at DEWA, HE Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, said: "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. We have in place a plan to regularly sterilise our facilities, using high-quality approved disinfectants and sterilisers."
