Dubai Supreme Council of Energy and Clean Energy Business Council establish dialogue on future of mobility in Dubai

29 October 2020 – Dubai Supreme Council of Energy today met with a group of industry stakeholders represented by the Clean Energy Business Council held an online meeting to discuss the future of mobility in Dubai, led by the DSCE Secretary General, H.E. Ahmad Buti al Muhairbi and CEBC Chairman Dr. Nasser Saidi, along with technical teams from both organizations and a group of industry representatives.

To support the transition of the automotive industry towards green mobility and the recent initiatives taking places in the UAE, the Future Mobility Club (FMC) has been created under the umbrella of the Clean Energy Business Council (CEBC), with initial focus on electric vehicles. FMC is supporting the growth of the EV market, green job development and is raising awareness about the electric vehicle industry, as well as interacting with key public-private stakeholders to establish partnerships and collaborations.

Dubai Supreme Council of Energy in August announced a new mandate for all government entities regarding electric and hybrid vehicles, presented in Directive No. 2 of 2020 on the Update of Green Mobility Targets 2030. The update of the Green Mobility Targets have been approved after the successful initial launch of the initiative in 2015, which launched the introduction of electric and hybrid vehicles in Dubai, with government leading by example.

During the meeting, participants exchanged their plans for the near future in the area of green mobility, discussed multiple challenges ahead and outlined the areas of future collaboration which are expected to benefit all stakeholders in the market, including green vehicle owners, both hybrid and electric.
