ESB Opens New High-Powered Charging Hub In Limerick

Construction News Image
ESB has launched a new High-Powered Charging Hub at Crescent Shopping Centre in Dooradoyle, Limerick, benefiting EV drivers in Limerick and the wider mid-west region of Ireland.

The new hub has four 200kW high-powered chargers which can charge eight EVs simultaneously and can provide 100km of charge in as little as six minutes. These new chargers are a welcomed addition to the already existing 21 chargers in Limerick County, seven of which are located in Limerick City.

The Crescent Shopping Centre, a major retail and food destination in the mid-west region, now offers a new high-powered charging hub, enabling more visitors to make sustainable choices while at the centre.

With over 1,600 public charge points spanning the country, ESB has built 41 high-power charging hubs nationwide in the last two years, upgrading over 300 chargers with advanced, faster technology. These progressive hubs are pivotal in bolstering Ireland's EV transition, aligning with the ambitious transport goals outlined in the Climate Action Plan. A significant achievement in 2023 was the doubling of high-power chargers, partly financed by the Government's Climate Action Fund.

Welcoming this announcement, John Byrne, Head of eMobility at ESB, said: "At ESB we know how important it is to have access to EV charging facilities on the go and are constantly upgrading and adding new charging locations to our extensive network. We are thrilled to announce the addition of eight new high power electric vehicle chargers to the Crescent Shopping Centre in Limerick. This expansion is a major step in connecting citizens in the mid-west region to critical charging infrastructure.

"EVs have developed into a key aspect of the Irish car market and play an important role in helping to achieve Ireland’s climate change targets. At ESB we are dedicated to enhancing this network to ensure it’s there for drivers when they need it and can empower them to make the transition to electric driving as easy as possible."

Brian O'Leary, Centre Manager of Limerick Crescent Shopping Centre stated: "The Crescent Shopping Centre has played an integral role in Limerick and the mid-west for over 50 years as a major driver of change and advancement in the region. We are delighted that we can continue to innovate and empower our customers 50 years on and this partnership with ESB is something we welcome, as it increases the sustainability offerings we can provide to shoppers. We know that our loyal customers are more environmentally conscious than ever and the additional charging infrastructure installed by ESB makes it easier and more efficient for them to charge their EV vehicles while visiting and availing of facilities at The Crescent Shopping Centre."
