Schneider Electric and Electromin To Drive Electric Mobility Adoption In Saudi Arabia


Schneider Electric and Electron have partnered together to drive growth for a range of technologies in Saudi Arabia’s electric vehicle (EV) sector.

The agreement aims to accelerate the realisation of sustainable and zero emission mobility by creating an integrated EV ecosystem that offers an affordable and unique solution, by providing access to advanced technology, products, infrastructure, and maintenance.

This comes as part of the efforts both companies are undertaking to contribute to and support the national efforts of promoting sustainable technologies that move the Kingdom towards its Vision 2030 goals, utilise clean energy to reduce the country’s carbon emissions, and create new jobs in the green economy space. Saudi Arabia’s Green Initiative aims to reduce the country’s carbon emissions in the region by 60 per cent using green technologies. Reducing carbon emissions from the transportation sector will be crucial to achieving its net zero goals.

Electromin is a leading technology and e-mobility solutions provider focusing on turnkey solutions from in-depth consultancy through to network operation and maintenance, the building of charging network throughout the country’s main urban areas to offer a seamless charging experience for EV drivers, and the provision of global industry expertise to provide the best knowledge to the fast-growing EV sector.
