Ireland, ESB and Renault-Nissan cooperate on electric vehicles

A collaboration between the Irish Government, the semi-state electricity supplier ESB and car manufacturer Renault-Nissan could see the introduction of electric vehicles to Irish roads within two years.

The Irish Government aims for 10% of vehicles to be electric by 2020.

ESB Chief Executive Padraig McManus, says: "ESB has set out its plans to become carbon-neutral by 2035 and carbon-neutral electricity will power an emissions-free transport system.

“ESB will roll out a charging network to support the development. We will guarantee open access to all electricity suppliers and car manufacturers and can ensure adherence to the strictest safety standards for the recharging points.”
