UAE pushes for e-car use
The United Arab Emirates launched a club to support the use of new energy cars, state news agency WAM reported on Tuesday. Under the umbrella of the Clean Energy Business Council, the New Energy Vehicles Club is a charging station manufacturer, WAM said. The club aims to serve as an example for the electric vehicle and clean energy industry and support the development of the electric vehicle market. Founding members of the club include international and local companies in the electric vehicle sector. The club will start in the UAE, but have a goal to expand activities across the Middle East and North Africa. “With growing demands on transportation across the MENA region, electric vehicles are arguably the future of sustainable mobility,” said Stephane le Gentil, chief executive officer of the CEBC.
