First installation of ubitricity EV lamp post charge points
First installation of ubitricity EV lamp post charge points in Dublin
The National Climate Action Plan looks for local authorities to be exemplars in moving to a decarbonised fleet and to help mobilise our communities to do the same.
Ubitricity, a member of the Shell Group and the largest operator of public EV charge stations in the UK is partnering with Fingal County Council on a pilot project, with Malahide Garda Station and Train Station selected as test sites new charging facilities.
By offering a public charging solution for residents without access to off-street parking such as a private garage, ubitricity's objective is to charge EVs when and where they park. This can be completed overnight and on the street right outside their homes. Drivers can charge without the need for a subscription by simply scanning the QR code and following the instructions.
Benefits of Solution
This service gives residents an opportunity to move towards more sustainable forms of transportation. Users of the charge points can avail of the service directly where they park their vehicles, making for a resourceful practice. Additionally, the compact nature of the charge points blends in with the local residential areas to make for a seamless transition and convenience of the service.
The rollout is beginning on a trial basis in Malahide with costs covered by Fingal County Council before becoming a pay-per-use service.
