Electric carsAn electric car that is on a 34,000 km zero-emission road trip – from the Netherlands to Australia – and has been driven through 22 countries, stopped by at Dubai International to refuel and support Dubai Airports’ green mobility event on March 2. Dubai Airports organized the event to support the adoption of clean technology and highlighted the potential positive impact of electric and hybrid vehicles in achieving energy efficiency and reducing carbon footprint.

 
This event also raised awareness about environmental benefits of cleaner technology among the thousands of passengers that pass through DXB by displaying three electric vehicles at DXB. To quote Michael Ibbitson, executive vice president – Technology & Infrastructure at Dubai Airports, “Dubai Airports is committed to supporting Dubai’s vision to reduce carbon footprint and adopt cleaner technologies for an environmentally sustainable future.

 

The green mobility initiative launched as part of the Dubai Plan 2021 identifies the deployment of electric and hybrid vehicles as a potential approach to achieving sustainability targets and help Dubai emerge as a smart integrated city.

 

The green mobility event was aimed at creating awareness about and adding to the increasing popularity of electric and hybrid vehicles. We are already helping to promote hybrid vehicles with two fully operational charging stations at DXB Terminals 1, 2 and at Dubai World Central while more stations are under planning.” The event was supported by Dubai Electricity & Water Authority and Toyota Prius.
