Shared Island Sports Club EV Charging Scheme Invites Expressions of Interest
A £13 million scheme to encourage sports clubs across the island of Ireland to install electric vehicle chargers is accepting applications from national sport governing bodies.
Funding is available to national governing bodies for sports in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to support the installation of electric vehicle charging points at sports club facilities.
Funded through the Irish Government’s Shared Island Fund and administered by Pobal on behalf of Zero Emission Vehicle Ireland (ZEVI), the Shared Island Sports Club EV Charging Scheme will receive £13 million (€15 million) from the Shared Island Fund for the period 2023-2024.
The scheme is inviting national governing bodies (NGBs) for sports in Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland to submit an Expression of Interest on behalf of their member clubs, which will be supported to install fast EV charge points at their grounds, providing charging for club members as well as local communities.
Member club(s) included in the NGB Expression of Interest must meet the minimum requirements for installing an EV charging point, details of which are available from Pobal.
The deadline for NGB Expressions of Interest is 28 February 2023 (5pm).
