Electric vehicles charged using off-grid solar power at Expo 2020 Dubai

From the X-ray machine to the telephone, throughout history world expos have been the home for inventions and technology that change our way of life.

Expo 2020 Dubai is no exception. As the Official Logistics Partner, UPS is working with DP World, the Official Premier Global Trade Partner of Expo, to showcase its transition to clean energy. UPS’s electric vehicles (EVs) will be charged for the first time with an off-grid charging system to power on-site deliveries.

“Today’s deployment of one of the world’s first off-grid electric vehicle charging systems is a demonstration of how Expo 2020 is connecting minds and creating the future,” said Scott Price, president of UPS international. “Our joint efforts allow us to decentralize the charging system, eliminate the need for electricity in charging vehicles at Expo 2020 and further our goal of becoming carbon neutral by 2050.”
