His Excellency Engineer Salem bin Nasser Al-Oufi, Chairman of the Public Services Regulatory Authority, issued Decision No. 15/2023 to issue regulations for the activity of charging electric vehicles. The decision outlines the regulations for establishing points for charging electric cars for individuals, institutions, and commercial activities, as well as detailing the necessary technical approvals and applicable laws.
This decision comes as part of national efforts to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050, by environmental commitments and international pledges to reduce carbon emissions, and to adopt the strategic direction of Vision 2040 for sustainable development based on effective, balanced, and flexible ecological systems.
The regulations for charging points include the tariff for public electric charging points, as well as private electric charging points. The tariff for private points shall be based on the approved tariff for electricity supply and the consumption category, while the tariff for public points shall be based on the cost-reflected tariff.
The regulations also state that no private or public electric charging point may be installed without obtaining a license.
