Thirty service stations will be providing fast charging by the end of 2011. Journeys between inter‐urban centres now possible with fast charging

ESB ecars (‐and‐events.jsp) has announced detailed plans for the rollout of fast charge points in service stations across the country from next month.    Under agreements with Topaz, The Maxol Group and Lidon Limited, a number of fast charge points will be available in service stations along inter‐urban routes from May and throughout the summer, enabling drivers to ‘power up’ electric cars from zero to 80% of their capacity in less than 30 minutes.
