The Dubai Supreme Council of Energy has adopted a strategy to achieve sustainable development to create a low-carbon economy and promote the use of hybrid cars and electric vehicles. Between 2016 and 2020, 2% of all cars purchased will be either electric or hybrid vehicles. This target will increase to 10% by 2030, Saeed Mohammed Al Tayer, vice chairman of the Supreme Council of Energy, was quoted as saying in a Wam news agency report. The council assessed its preliminary objectives for 2016-2020 to create a market to facilitate the use of these vehicles, said the report. It launched the Dubai Green Mobility initiative to encourage the use of sustainable transport and electric vehicles.
