Critical to the take up of electric vehicles is the provision of the infrastructure and ESB, as the single owner/operator of the electricity distribution system is responsible for implementing the charging infrastructure across Ireland. It will be a comprehensive network of charge points with open systems and platforms accessible to all supply companies and all types of electric cars.
In March 2010, ESB installed the first on-street charge points in Dublin and they are now being deployed in other locations across the country. The target for the end of 2011 is:
• 2000 home charge units installed
• 1500 public charge points available across Ireland
• 30 fast charge points installed
Part of the process in buying an electric car is to register for charging so that drivers have access to public charge points and have a charge point installed in your home. Signing up is easy by filling out a form online.
