Atlantic Technological University together with Trinity College Dublin, ESB and Enterprise Rent-A-Car, will lead a €1.35m shared electric mobility project.
This project will deliver four shared electric mobility hubs in Dublin, Galway, Sligo and Donegal with each hub providing charging infrastructure, electric cars, ebikes and ecargo bikes for shared use.
The project will assess community adoption and hub usage patterns over a three-year trial period, testing the potential of shared emobility to decarbonise transport in Ireland. From the trial, the project will provide evidence on how such hubs can work in different parts of the country and inform national and international transport decarbonisation policies.
Funding of almost €850,000 has been awarded by the Government through the SEAI.
