There is a range of electric vehicle charge points to suit different needs including home charge points, on-street charge points and fast chargers. The cost of such charge points can vary from several hundred euro to many thousands.

My Department, through the SEAI, provides a grant of up to €600 to support the installation of home charge points. Supporting 1,000 such charge points would cost my Department up to €600,000.

A new support for on-street charge points is being introduced , again through the SEAI, which will support 75% of the capital cost up to a maximum of €5,000 per charge point. Supporting 1,000 such charge points would cost my Department up to €5,000,000.
