    I have not seen much talk here but ESB e-cars hold a mostly business to business event each year on a weekday where they give talks about Electric Vehicles. Many commercial suppliers have stands there such as charger suppliers, and in the past it was expensive ticketed event. This year its all online with even the speakers at their homes.

    The line up and topics looks impressive.

    125 euro a ticket + vat says it all really, but it does get a lot of press coverage and people talking. ESB might (re) launch their hubs again like they did 2 years ago I think it was, maybe last year...

    They might think of running something on a weekend for the public any year now.

    Do I recall ESB giving away electric cars for 6 months to customers who just happened to be family and friends of those organising the competition.

    Not to be confused with Father Ted.

    Maybe our mighty ESB could show the corporate international fee paying audience how it's done. How you install a world leading public charging network (not with your own money of course, no, funded by the tax payer). Their best performance in 2020 was to "upgrade" some AC chargers from dual 22kW to single 2kW while also allowing one car at a time to "rapid" charge at 44kW. No sign of any "superhubs", at their very best charge points 2 cars can charge at the same time. 2!!!

    At the same time, Tesla is about to install 200 stall superchargers (250-300kW, not 44kW). At zero cost to the tax payer.

    Please, please, please, all of you, do your best to take the ESB away from being involved in car charging. It's a total waste of your money. Talk about it online, lobby your local politicians. Try to make sure your money is better spent.

    Just a bump to say this is on tomorrow. There should be some social media with any big announcements which we can discuss here.
