A £3.27 million bid to upgrade the Electrical Vehicle charging network across Northern Ireland will see the entirety of the public charging network enhanced for the benefit of communities and electric vehicle users.
Plans for the funding allocation include:
- replacing 100 fast chargers; the equivalent of 200 charge points
- upgrading 20 unreliable fast chargers to rapid chargers, more than doubling the existing capacity
- introducing five high-power charging hubs in key locations, which can charge multiple vehicles at the same time
This would deliver high power charging hubs for the first time in Northern Ireland. The aim is to encourage people to adopt Electric Vehicles and promote green travel, as we transition to cleaner and greener modes of transport.
