ESB And Renault Sign Deal To Back Electric Car Scheme

 

Updated : Apr 4, 2009

The government has signed an agreement with the ESB and carmaker Renault-Nissan to increase the usage of electric vehicles to support its target of making one-tenth of all road vehicles electrically powered by 2020.

The agreement, which is to provide infrastructure for a network of refuelling points which will offer an alternative source of fuel to traditional petrol stations, was announced by Minister for Energy Eamon Ryan in Dublin Castle yesterday.

Renault-Nissan, the merged French-Japanese carmaker, will undertake to provide new electric vehicles for the private user as well as delivery vans and other vehicles while the ESB will assume the responsibility of the countrywide roll-out of the refuelling points. The ESB is to also promote a special night-rate deal under which householders will be able to charge their cars.

Sustainable Energy Ireland chief executive Prof J Owen Lewis said renewable, wind and tidal energy could and should be harnessed to power the cars.

VeryHappyPig says so how much will the electric car scheme cost to get off the ground!?
