Minister for Transport, Eamon Ryan, recently announced the new Shared Island Sports Club Scheme, as part of the new Electric Vehicles Charging Infrastructure Strategy 2022 – 2025. The strategy will see €100 million spent on public charging infrastructure over the next three years.
The new Island Sports Club Scheme will open soon on the 30th of January, as the first practical roll-out of the strategy. The scheme will help sports clubs install electric vehicle charge points in sporting facilities across the island of Ireland. It is envisioned that when people drop off kids at sports training or use sports facilities themselves, they can charge their car at the same time.
A projected €15 million is to be spent on the rollout of 90 rapid electric vehicle charging points at sports facilities around the island. The Government has been liaising with the governing bodies of sports including football, rugby and Gaelic Games about the plan. While the charging points will be located on sports grounds, they will be fully accessible to all members of the public that wish to utilise them.
The plan is said to contribute to the Government’s Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Strategy, and "take away concern or worry" felt by the public in accessing charging points, as outlined by Minister Ryan.
