the cash, cars and charging points in place to make EVs the smart
choice of Irish motorists.
The Irish Government has set an ambitious target of
10% of the Irish motoring fleet to be electric by 2020. Why? Because
the environmental and economic benefits are potentially enormous!
Electric Vehicles (EVs), for instance, offer zero
CO2 emissions of which transport is currently
the 3rd largest contributor globally. Equally, EVs are significantly
more efficient and cheaper to run and maintain than conventional
fossil fuelled cars. It is estimated, for example, that running
an electric car costs 3 cents per mile as opposed to 15 cent per
mile for a conventional car.
is considered a leader in the global EV initiative with demography
and political support making Ireland one of the most suitable locations
in the world for a large-scale roll-out of EVs.
Indeed, such is Irelandís determination to be a leader in eMobility,
the necessary conditions - including the cash, cars and charging
points - are presently being put in place to allow for the successful
adoption of EVs in Ireland now and in the near future.
These conditions include -
- Grants of up to Ä5,000
and an exemption from Vehicle Registration Tax
businesses to purchase electric vehicles
- Ireland will be one of the first
countries in the world to have a nationwide
electric charging network
and pilots are
being conducted to test the infrastructure and collect the data
necessary to examine driving trends, usage patterns as well as
the new electric car lifestyle experience
- The Government has signed Memorandums
of Understanding (MOUs) with several
car manufacturers to roll out EVs in Ireland
- Irelandís natural advantages in terms of wind and other renewables
ensure a large proportion of the power used by EVs will be carbon
It is against this
backdrop that Irelandís leading conference organisers - iQuest
- believe the time is right to stage the Inaugural
National Electric Vehicles Summit (NEVS). This innovative
event is about making the most of the opportunities presented by
EVs. It is about aligning objectives, creating partnerships and
adopting business models to facilitate the entrance of EVs onto
the Irish market. It will also look at the barriers to EVs becoming
mainstream and being accepted by Irish consumers - a task that will
be made a lot easier if the Arab states remain in turmoil and oil
prices continue to rise.
