South Dublin County Council, in collaboration with the other Dublin Local Authorities, has commissioned a report and strategy for the rollout of Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure across the Dublin region.
The strategy aims to ensure that a uniform approach is adopted when considering suitable locations; to match the needs of our communities, to ensure adequate facilities to keep ahead of the demand and equipment that will be compatible with existing technology and back office software.
The report, which was launched in June, will also be a key document for defining planning policy for future EV charging infrastructure developments. It will also present a range of alternatives for each local authority with respect to commercial options and potential partnerships. The Regional EV Steering group and Element Energy have also developed a stakeholder engagement strategy to augment the Regional EV charging strategy.
South Dublin County Council are currently engaging with key stakeholders to deliver a number of pilot EV charging projects across the county.
