EasyGo Investment To Significantly Expand Ireland’s Electric Vehicle Public Charging Network

EasyGo has secured more than €15 million of funding to add 500 Rapid Chargers to its Irish Electric Vehicle (“EV”) Charging Network.

Covering both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland, the high-powered chargers will be rolled out to retail, town centre and hospitality destinations via a range of strategic partnerships that EasyGo has and continues to enter into. This investment will address the significant deficit for such infrastructure across the entire island of Ireland, thereby alleviating range anxiety which is one of the critical barriers to fostering greater EV usage in the country.

The investment from Rubicon Capital Advisors, DunPort Capital Management and Air Core provides EasyGo with the ability to invest, install and maintain public EV chargers across Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland

We are very pleased to have been able to support EasyGo with this transformative transaction. With our focus on mid-market companies across the UK and Ireland, particularly those on the front line of the energy transition, EasyGo is very much the type of company we like to support. Easy Go is fast-growing, innovative and in a sector that is critically important to both the economy and to the environment.”, said DunPort Capital Management Investment Director, Andrew Graham.
