Ireland Enjoys 5-to-One Ratio of Charging Stations to Electric Cars
ently, there are five publicly accessible charge points for every electric vehicle in Ireland, according to new figures released by the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources.
In response to a parliamentary question, Minister Pat Rabbitte said that there is a total of 259 electric vehicles in Ireland. Last year, there were 23 of these vehicles registered, up from just two back in 2010. Rabbitte said that the ESB, through its ‘ecars’ programme, is “continuing to roll out both publicly accessible charging infrastructure and domestic charge points”, with 1,280 already installed nationally.
The company has spent some €9.3 million to date on this infrastructure. Dublin is the county with the most electric vehicles at 119, with Cork and Wexford following behind with 17 and 16 respectively.
Donegal, Leitrim, Monaghan, Roscommon, South Tipperary and Waterford are the only counties that have no registered electric vehicles.
