According to Electrek, EasyGo has announced that they will invest in DC fast chargers in towns and villages around Ireland. These chargers will be placed where ancient phone boxes once stood.
In addition to their current 2,400 charge points, EasyGo will install 200 Tritium 50 kW modular DC fast chargers. The business has agreements to install Tritium chargers at 70 locations, and they are collaborating with local governments to find 130 additional locations throughout the nation at no cost to county councils.
The country’s adoption of EVs is expanding significantly, therefore adding more accessible EV chargers will be beneficial.
Additionally, the ease of access to EV chargers will reduce concern for new EV drivers and even those who are considering purchasing. More EV chargers will also be available in the nation’s rural areas. The aim of having nearly one million EVs on the road by 2030 is included in Ireland’s Climate Action Plan, which is contributing to the country’s increased EV adoption.
Investing in infrastructure for fast charging is one method for achieving this goal. The deployment of DC fast chargers across the nation will also aid in extending the European charger network. Europe still has a very modest number of DC fast chargers, but the network will expand as additional nations, including Ireland, invest.
With their new Climate Action Plan that focuses on sustainability and enhancing quality of life, Ireland’s news of more EV chargers is welcome. EVs will be able to travel long distances without having to sacrifice charging speed thanks to DC Fast Chargers. This feature comes in handy when traveling a long distance by car, making the commute to work, or even just running errands.
