Over the past year Sigma have been exploring ways to introduce more widespread EV charging facilities across the 13 property locations we manage, worth over €500m.
One of the main barriers had been the delivery of civils with many substations placed at the back of properties but the charging points are needed at the front. Our aim is to deliver the best customer solution for each property. The highest speed chargers are a significant capital cost and require significant electrical capacity. In some locations the delivery cost was an obstacle, and this is a concern shared by many other property owners and managers.
We are delighted to have been working with EV companies on different delivery models that will allow for us to deliver best-in-class chargers. With close to one million Electric Vehicles targeted by the government to be on Irish roads by 2030, the supporting infrastructure will be key to customer usage.
Innovation in tackling delivery obstacles will be paramount in tackling climate change and we are delighted to have met companies proposing such solutions and look forward to developing more of such partnerships in the upcoming months.
