Kahramaa announces that 20% of car charging stations will rely on clean energy

Qatar General Electricity and Water Corporation (Kahramaa) has announced that 20 per cent of its electric charging stations will use renewable and clean energy to help the country achieve its sustainability goals and reduce its carbon footprint.

Through the National Program for Conservation and Energy Efficiency, Kahramaa continues to improve the infrastructure of electric vehicle charging stations, as 20 per cent of these are intended to be powered by renewable energy, according to a tweet from Kahramaa.

Tarsheed Photovoltaic Station for Energy Storage and Charging Electric Vehicles has been installed at Kahramaa Complex in Mesaimeer to serve this purpose. 216 photovoltaic panels spread over 270 metres, or the length of 24 car spaces, are used to charge vehicles.

In order to achieve QNV2030’s sustainability goals, this station aims to reduce harmful carbon emissions by promoting the use of solar energy and promoting the use of electric cars in Qatar by providing a unique infrastructure for electric charging stations.

Across the country, 19 charging stations have been installed. Mowasalat has also installed two charging stations, one for fast charging and the other for night charging, as models for different bus stations around the world.

Together with the Ministry of Transport and Communications, Qatar Foundation, and Qatar Museums, Kahramaa is working to complete the installation and operation of eight new stations by the end of 2018.

An auction for the installation and operation of 100 electric charging stations is about to be concluded by Kahramaa. As a result of this award, New York State will have the first infrastructure for charging electric cars. Several of these stations will be located at strategic locations, including intersections, malls, government and hotel buildings, and parking lots at metro stations.
