The Electric Charging Infrastructure is falling way behind demand.

“I am aware of two families who bought electric cars but sold them again as there were too few electric charging points available to the public.

There are no on-street public charges available in County Galway. There are limited charging points at some carparks. The Government are sleep walking us into another mess when it comes to Climate Change and are not making the necessary changes to match the demand for public charging points.

With a target of one million electric cars in the country by 2030, the pace of building electric vehicle infrastructure is sporadic and is not meeting the current demand and if this continues we will never meet the expected demand.

It is typical of a great idea becoming a nightmare as Government are failing to deliver. Ireland needs to provide a network of charging infrastructure to meet the expected demand over the next 8 years”.
