EV Charging Infrastructure Strategy 2022-2025.
Very positive news from the Department of Transport with the publication of Ireland’s first EV Charging Infrastructure Strategy 2022-2025.
We have been swamped with noise around EV charging over the last number of years. Bannon has installed charging units at a number of retail centres across the country, with more in the pipeline. Whilst there is clearly a need nationwide for a charging infrastructure to accompany the push to electrify the national fleet, the planning and installation of this infrastructure needs to be informed by the rational analysis of reliable data.
At Bannon we have access to an enormous database of nationwide data about how people use cars to access shopping destinations and where they come from, with over 100 million customer visits generated by the portfolio annually. This data can be used to establish which retail schemes need more charging points to satisfy their customer requirements, which schemes can be used as charging stop over points for people on longer journeys and which journeys could be redirected to public transport, cycling or walking. Using data to ensure that resources are deployed where they will be of most benefit is at the core of sustainability.
The Department of Transport is inviting input on the draft strategy to be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org
