Croke Park, Thursday 24th October
Electric Vehicle Summit 2019 – It looks like the electric vehicles (EVs) are finally on the road to replace the internal combustion engine. With the help of ambitious emission-reduction targets, growing support from government and rapid industry and technological developments we're close to significant expansion.
The Government's much-anticipated Climate Action Plan has recently been published, setting out a roadmap for how Ireland will meet its greenhouse gas targets. Much of the focus is on EVs, with the aim to have almost 1 million electric vehicles on our roads by 2030. The number of charge points will be increased in the coming years and fees for their use will be introduced. Local authorities will also be rolling out about 200 charge points nationwide.
These are exciting and interesting times for the EV industry. This year's summit will analyse the challenges and opportunities for industry and policy makers in achieving our target of 1 million electric vehicles on Irish roads by 2030. Building on the success of our previous summits, these issues along with host of other topics will be addressed at the 4th National EV Summit.
Widespread electric vehicle adoption requires a supportive ecosystem of stakeholders including utilities, government, vehicle OEMs, charging providers, interest groups and drivers. Electric Vehicles Summit 2019 brings all of these stakeholders together under one roof to explore, in a highly interactive format, emerging trends, share best practices and map the road ahead. This annual conference is about looking at how Ireland can make the most of the opportunities presented by EVs. It is about aligning objectives, creating partnerships and adopting business models to facilitate further adoption into the Irish market.
