Admiral Energy and Autel partner to expand EV charging infrastructure in the Middle East and Africa.A strategic collaboration deal between Admiral Energy and Autel aims to considerably increase EV charging infrastructure across the Middle East and Africa.
The chargers, which have undergone testing in the UAE, will meet the region’s increasing demand for electric vehicles. 70,000 EV charging stations are expected to be needed, according to the UAE government alone, to meet the rising demand for environmentally friendly transportation.
Admiral Energy has committed to delivering chargers to the UAE as part of a strategic relationship, with ambitions to roll out the chargers throughout the region. With COP28 soon approaching, the news release emphasises Admiral Energy and Autel’s aim to service the rapidly increasing Electric Vehicle industry in the Middle East as firms seek greener solutions for their commercial fleets.
Admiral Energy will collaborate closely with Autel to produce chargers that are especially suited to the GCC market for the standalone high speed DC charging solutions. Due to growing logistics and transport operations in the area, as traditional cars are replaced by zero-emission ones, the GCC Electric Vehicle market is predicted to reach.
The charger line, which includes five DC charging options and ranges from 47kW DC Compact to 400kW DC charger solutions, was unveiled at the Electric Vehicle Innovation Summit (EVIS) at ADNEC.
With auxiliary balancing and healthy charging, they should work with 99.5% of car models and can increase battery life by up to 20%.To help them on their path to carbon neutrality, Admiral Energy will provide the chargers to its partners and dealers.Admiral Mobility announced a partnership with AVIS UAE to provide EV trucks for the leasing market.
