Minister of Electricity and Renewable Energy, Mohamed Shaker, said they study a plan to provide electric vehicle (EV) charging stations at state-run electricity distribution companies nationwide.

Shaker told Daily News Egypt that the ministry aims to set a competitive tariff for EV charging to encourage customers to buy this type of environmentally friendly cars.

The minister noted that charging a single EV needs no less than three hours, so the locations of the charging stations should be determined carefully, suggesting that commercial malls and places of gathering can be suitable for the EV charging stations so that users can spend the charging time in accomplishing other things, such as shopping.

Shaker noted that Egypt has huge daily reserves of electricity up to 20,000MW that can be used in many fields.
