ecars was established in 2010 by ESB to roll out the charging infrastructure for electric vehicles across Ireland and to support the introduction and demand for electric vehicles nationally.
ecars operates and maintains 1,200 public charge points across the island of Ireland. These are available for electric vehicle (EV) drivers to re-charge their vehicles and enable longer journeys across the country.
ecars plays an ongoing leadership role on Eurelectric’s Task Force on Electromobility; is a global pioneer in the development of a worldwide standard Open Charge Point Protocol (OCPP) as well as having been involved in several major European electromobility projects including TEN-T, Green eMotion, Mobi.Europe & RCN (Rapid Charge Network) UK.
ESB Group has had a presence in the UK since 1992 and in the last five years has invested over STG£2 billion in the UK energy market.
Electrification of transport is vital to decarbonise society and reduce oil dependency and that is why in 2010, ecars launched its Electric Vehicle (EV) Programme and set out its ambition to build one of the first nationwide public charging systems and we now have one of the most advanced end-to-end electric vehicle charging systems in the world.
The ecars team is uniquely positioned to provide solutions across a wide range of electromobility projects and our team has been at the forefront of the development of EV charging infrastructure in Europe.
