Roll out of ESB high power chargers continues across Ireland

 

Together with every electric vehicle owner, ESB is playing its part in powering Ireland towards a cleaner, brighter future. To ensure we are ready to support more electric vehicles on our roads, we’re investing in and upgrading the ESB electric vehicle public charging network across Ireland.   

 

This work is part of a €20m investment in the public charging networks. The intent of the programme is to update the charging speeds and technology, to improve reliability and to expand the network, the chargers are capable of being updated as technology improves further and allow for future expansion where possible.  

 

Part of this project is focused on building and developing high power charging sites capable of charging multiple vehicles simultaneously.  High power chargers are 150kW and can deliver 100km of range to an EV in as little as 6 minutes.  20 sites have been completed to date with more to follow. 

 

The electrification of transport is a key component of ESB’s low carbon strategy for a brighter future and forms an essential part of our Net Zero by 2040 strategy.  

 

With 1,350 charge points nationwide, it has never been easier to charge your electric vehicle.
