    Recording of event here now:



    Its quite a long video mostly around future plans for new chargers, and the problems with viability for lots of chargers in apartments. 2 hours total length

    There are time codes if you just want to watch certain segments.

    I particularly liked the presentation by Simon Vogt of &Charge. I think Irish supermarkets should let customers use their loyalty programme points to get free charging while shopping. A few fast chargers at Tesco or SuperValue would be nice, and could even incentivise people without access to home charging to buy EVs.

    The Tesco ship already sailed when they installed AC22’s at most of their stores!! - a place where the average shopper will spend 10-25 minutes.......
    When folks do use my local Tesco charge point, the cars are abandoned there for hours in order to get any meaningful amount of charge!!

    Now I like what EasyGo & SuperValu (Musgraves) are doing in planning to roll out fast DC charging at their stores..... This is where the smart money is.

    Simon was the last speaker before questions (which lasted about 20 minutes. So I'd guess Simon started around 30-40 minutes from the end
