The Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) stresses that all companies wanting to install electric charging units for electric vehicles (EV) must coordinate directly with the Technical Affairs Department at the Ministry before going ahead with installing the said units. Companies can simply call 40451275 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
This comes in implementation of the Electric Vehicle Strategy prepared by MOTC, in collaboration with the relevant bodies, which includes the standard specifications and criteria for EVs and charging units already certified by competent government agencies.
The step is meant to ensure that charging units match the approved standards and specifications as well as the State's plans drawn in this regard by the taskforce in charge of implementing the strategy of installing electric changing units, chaired by MOTC with the membership of the Qatar General Electricity & Water Corporation (KAHRAMAA). This taskforce will be working on issuing a guidebook on the infrastructure relating to EV charging units in the State of Qatar.
It is worth noting that MOTC coordinates with a number of government agencies to install and operate EV charging units during this year and next year. This also includes coordination with private sector companies to provide a number of charging units for free that match standard specifications, and install them at locations that are specified by MOTC, as well as performing periodic maintenance for these units.
