Mubadala, ENGIE sign MoU to advance sustainable mobility in Abu Dhabi, Middle East

WAM: Mubadala Investment Company and ENGIE, a worldwide energy leader, signed a Memorandum of Understanding to explore the development of a digital platform for charging electric vehicles in Abu Dhabi and the Middle East region.

Under the agreement, the two companies will work together to explore the development of a digital platform which will include a joint solution for the installation and operation of charging infrastructure in UAE. Additionally, the parties will explore other areas of collaboration related to sustainable mobility.

With the transport sector known as a significant contributor to global carbon footprint, electric vehicles are deemed as a key to supporting decarbonising the mobility sector, with emissions from EVs up to 43% lower than traditionally fueled vehicles, as reported by Carbon Brief. Developing an EV friendly digital platform can play an important role for the UAE in meeting the goals of its Strategic Initiatives Net Zero by 2050.
