Qatar Electricity and Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA), represented by the National Program for Conservation and Energy Efficiency (Tarsheed), has launched the Electric Car Charging Station Project – Phase I as part of the Green Car Initiative in Qatar.

Commenting on the launch, Essa bin Hilal Al-Kuwari, KAHRAMAA president said: Last May, the Ministry of Energy and Industry, the Ministry of Transport and Communications, and KAHRAMAA signed the ‘Green Car Initiative’. The agreement stemmed from the country’s understanding of the importance of providing future generations with a clean, healthy, and safe environment and comes as part of Tarsheed’s objective to reduce CO2 emissions in Qatar by (7%) from the total targeted percentage of all sectors (17%) by 2022, in line with the National Development Strategy II.
