Greenergy ESB Charger

Rapid and high power EV charging points will be introduced at selected Irish retail forecourts operating under Greenergy’s Amber and Inver brands, as a result of a deal between the oil company and energy company ESB.

Sixteen forecourts have been identified across the Inver and Amber portfolio and include a mix of company-owned, company-leased and dealer sites. The charging units will be rolled out in two-phases, with more than half of the sites to be completed over the coming 18 months.

Chris O’Callaghan, head of Greenergy Ireland, said: “Our Inver and Amber retail forecourts give our customers variety in both our fuel and non-fuel forecourt services, and we see this venture with ESB as a way to provide another convenient offering to meet a new fuel demand.

“EVs alongside liquid renewables, where Greenergy has a market leading position, will make up the energy mix as we head to a decarbonised Ireland, and we are adapting to meet the needs of our customer base.”

John Byrne, head of ESB ecars, said: “For the last 10 years, ESB has installed and maintained the country’s public charging network with more than 1,350 points now available. We are always looking to expand and enhance our network with these 16 sites crucial to delivering a well-located, reliable public charging network to the increasing number of EV drivers across Ireland.

“These sites will include a mix of rapid and high-power chargers which can provide 100km of range in as little as six minutes. We are excited to partner with Greenergy and selected the Amber and Inver sites given their attractive convenience retail and local community offering. We look forward to working with Greenergy on providing this essential service to their customers.”
