News

EasyGo.ie, Ireland’s first privately-owned electric vehicle (EV) charging network, unveiled Ireland’s most advanced, publicly-available DC charger at the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan.

EasyGo.ie has deployed a Veefil-RT 50kW DC rapid charger from the DC charging technology specialist, Tritium. The successful installation marks the first deployment of a rapid charger in Ireland on a new site in some time, and the first deployment of a 50kW DC public charger on a private network in Ireland. The charger, the most advanced of its kind with the smallest physical footprint in the world, can add 50 kilometres of range to an electric vehicle in just 10 minutes.

EasyGo.ie, founded in 2018 by Chris Kelly and Gerry Cash, also announced plans to install 88 of Tritium's DC rapid chargers by the end of 2020, with at least 20 to be deployed by the end of 2019, leading to the creation of up to 50 new jobs in operations and customer support.

“Sales of new EVs in Ireland have increased by 541% this year alone, so it's clear we'll need more charge points to cater for an increase in EVs on the road,” said EasyGo.ie Co-Founder, Chris Kelly. “EV drivers are always looking for places to charge and the availability of this and future rapid chargers will help ensure drivers have options across Ireland, from Malin Head to Mizen Head.”

The charger was unveiled at a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the Four Seasons Hotel in Monaghan. The Ceremony was attended by Minister for Business, Enterprise and Innovation, Heather Humphreys T.D.

“The deployment of the EasyGo.ie DC rapid charger is yet another step forward in our efforts to combat climate change,” said Minister Humphreys. “Ireland has been a leader in the eMobility space for some time, and with EasyGo.ie entering the market and establishing itself quickly with installations such as this one and those planned for the future, Ireland will continue to lead the way.”

EasyGo.ie partnered with Tritium to leverage Tritium's expertise in design, deployment and engineering, combined with its superior backend consultation and support capabilities. Tritium has installed chargers in more than 29 countries and its Veefil-RT is considered the most advanced charger of its kind in the world, with the smallest physical footprint - ensuring installation can be undertaken unobtrusively and successfully in areas where real estate or space is at a premium.

“It's been proven time and again the world over that the installation of publicly-available rapid charging options leads to greater EV uptake,” said Kevin Pugh, Business Development Manager for Tritium, UK and Ireland. “With EasyGo.ie planning to install chargers at 88 sites in two years, you'll start to see a noticeable increase in EV adoption and this will have a major impact in helping Ireland achieve its climate change goals.

Each Veefil-RT DC rapid charger features a modem which can alert EasyGo.ie and EV drivers - using the EasyGo.ie web app (with a native app coming soon) - in real-time if the charger is available or not.
