ABOUT THE EV SUMMIT & EXPO 2022
“Ireland is firmly set on the path towards a decarbonised transport system and EVs will be a key part of this” – Minister for Transport Eamon Ryan
ABOUT THE SUMMIT
WIth fuel prices soaring, many drivers are making the move to electric vehicles sooner than initially planned. Both passenger car, and fleet owner and operators are looking toward the government and wider EV industry for the information, solutions and stability they need to make the transition to electric.
Challenges around model supply and affordability, access to charging infrastructure, fluctuating energy costs and range anxiety continue to be ongoing. But with electric vehicle demand rapidly increasing and electric vehicles being seen as one of the key avenues to achieving transport sector decarbonisation, it is imperative for industry and government to work closely together to ensure the adoption of electric vehicles is successful and sustainable.
With this in mind, this year’s Electric Vehicle Summit will bring the key influencers and change makers to the table to discuss solutions to these imminent matters, and to share their plans to support the delivery of 194,000 electric cars and vans by the middle of the decade.
