Electrifying Dublin: ePower’s Comprehensive Guide to Home, Business, and Public EV Chargers

In the bustling streets of Dublin, the soft hum of electric vehicles (EVs) is becoming an increasingly common sound. With a city in motion committed to sustainable living, EV infrastructure is vital. 

This detailed guide, brought to you by ePower, Dublin’s premier EV charger provider, is your compass in the electrified space of Dublin, highlighting the options, the benefits, and the leap towards a greener future for private homes, businesses, and public spaces. If you are a part of the Dublin community ready to plug into the EV revolution, this comprehensive resource has all the charging credentials you need.

The Dublin Charge: A City on the Move with EVs

Dublin is evolving into a centre for e-mobility. The city’s charge towards sustainability is palpable with an expanding EV infrastructure. With the European Commission announcing Dublin and Cork among 100 cities participating in EU Mission for climate-neutral and smart cities by 2030, it’s never been more important for the capital to row in behind the EV revolution.

Home is where the charge starts, and ePower’s home installations offer the convenience of ‘at-home refuelling.’ Businesses across Dublin are also seizing the opportunity to boost their sustainability credentials with ePower’s commercial fleet solutions. Public spaces that once resonated with the echo of petrol engines are now home to fast public chargers, both AC and DC thanks to an evolving public EV charger network.

The Rise of Electric Vehicles in Dublin

EV Ownership Statistics

According to the Central Statistics Office of Ireland, “Almost four in every ten (39.8%) of respondents who do not currently own an EV, stated that they would consider purchasing one“, highlighting a profound shift in consumer preferences. Owners are not just early adopters but enthusiastic advocates for the environmental benefits and cost efficiencies EVs offer. These predictions made in 2019 were borne out by the SIMI’s survey which showed that EV purchases has increased 45% Year on Year. This figure of 121,850 EV registrations was an astounding 561% increase on 2019. 

Government and Private Sector Initiatives

Dublin’s EV surge is not just people powered. Government-led initiatives such as the SEAI grant, the ZEVI public charge scheme and EV purchasing incentives play a significant role in fostering the EV ownership landscape. Private companies are also stepping up, making investments to electrify their fleets and provide home chargers for their staff.

Installing an EV charger can be an investment, but ePower simplifies it by breaking down the costs transparently. From equipment to labour, we provide a detailed cost analysis even before we begin the installation.

Before any work begins, ePower provides a detailed cost analysis, breaking down each component of the installation process. This transparency allows customers to understand exactly what they are paying for and helps avoid any surprises. The analysis includes:

  • A line-item breakdown of all equipment and labour costs.
  • Any applicable permits or fees required by local regulations.
  • An estimate of the total cost, along with options for customization or upgrades that could enhance the charging experience.

By providing a clear and detailed breakdown of the installation costs, ePower ensures that customers can make informed decisions about their EV charging solutions. This approach not only builds trust but also empowers consumers to take control of their transition to electric vehicle ownership with confidence.

What are the Long-term saving of EV Ownership

The transition to electric vehicles (EVs) in Ireland presents a compelling case for long-term savings, particularly when considering the cost of electricity versus traditional fuel. Taking a concrete example from the Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI), we see that driving an EV can be more economical than operating a petrol car.

For instance, SEAI’s analysis shows that by utilizing a 90/10 split between home charging and public charging, EV owners can experience substantial savings. If we examine the cost of running an electric vehicle versus a petrol car over the distance of 100 miles, the savings become evident. In Ireland, cruising 100 miles in an average petrol car might cost you around €13.70, whereas an EV covers the same distance for approximately €13.05. This difference, though seemingly small per 100 miles, accumulates significantly over the lifetime of the vehicle.

Moreover, the SEAI highlights that fuelling an electric vehicle costs much less than fuelling a similar size petrol or diesel car, with potential savings ranging between 50 and 60% on fuel costs. The reason behind these savings is twofold: 

  1. First, electricity, especially when sourced from home solar panels or other renewable sources, can be cheaper and less volatile in price compared to petrol or diesel. 
  2. Second, EVs are inherently more energy-efficient, converting more of the electrical energy from the grid to power at the wheels.

An example further illustrating these savings involves the comparison between popular models like the Nissan Leaf and the Volkswagen Golf. For an average driver in Ireland, switching to an electric vehicle like the Nissan Leaf could lead to considerable savings in fuel costs alone, not to mention the reduced maintenance costs associated with electric vehicles. EVs have fewer moving parts than internal combustion engine vehicles, leading to lower servicing costs and fewer things that could go wrong.

The introduction of policies requiring petrol stations to display a price comparison poster showing how petrol and diesel cars compare with electric alternatives is a step towards increasing consumer awareness of these benefits. This initiative aims to inform the public about the economic advantages of electric vehicles, encouraging more drivers to consider making the switch.

In summary, the case of Ireland illustrates the broader financial benefits of adopting electric vehicles. With the cost of electricity being more stable and generally lower than that of petrol or diesel, coupled with the reduced maintenance costs, the long-term savings of driving an EV are clear. As infrastructure improves and technology advances, these savings are likely to increase, making electric vehicles an even more attractive option for Irish drivers.
