UAE pushes for e-car use

China Daily (Canada) - - BUSINESS -

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.
