Launch of the Apartment Charging Grant

Residential charging is the most cost effective and convenient way of charging electric vehicles and is expected to make up 80% of overall charging needs. The EV Apartment Charging grant is being launched today, for dwellings which do not have access to a driveway such as apartments, duplexes and mixed. Further information is available on the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) website.

Expansions of the EV Home Charger Grant

The EV Home Charger grant is also being expanded from today to allow any homeowner to apply for a grant to install a charger. This will enable homeowners to install a charger in advance of purchasing an electric vehicle, for visitor use or at rented accommodation. Further information is available on the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) website.

EV Smart Charger Register

From September 2022, the Home Charger scheme will only support Smart Chargers. This will improve safety, prevent excessive electrical demand and facilitate better integration with renewable energy sources. For manufacturers and installers wishing to register their products please go to the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) website.

EV Commercial Fleet Trial

A new trial was launched July 2022 to promote and encourage the electrification of the commercial fleet in Ireland. This trial will afford businesses the opportunity to test an EV free of charge for a minimum period of 3 months. Its purpose is to show, through real world evidence, the benefits, savings and the suitability and viability of EVs in a commercial setting. Due to overwhelming demand, applications for the EV Commercial Fleet Trials are now closed. Applications are being assessed by the SEAI who will be in contact with all applicants in the coming weeks.
