Two Tipperary Towns Eligible For Funding For Electric Car Charging Points


Two towns in Tipperary are eligible to benefit from funding from the EU Just Transition Fund to Install Community Facilities for Electric Vehicle (EV) Charging.

The Scheme will see €15 million invested from the EU Just Transition Fund to support the roll-out of publicly accessible, fast charge point infrastructure at community facilities in Thurles and Carrick on Suir alongside a number of other counties subject to applications being approved.

This scheme aims to provide EV charging at popular public facilities including community centres, public libraries, public health centres, recreational facilities, and enterprise centres across the Just Transition territory. 

The scheme is part of the EU JTF Programme that is to support regions that are experiencing the negative impacts from the transition away from fossil fuel-intensive or greenhouse-gas-intensive industries, such as the using peat for energy generation or the production of briquettes.

Minister Eamon Ryan says the scheme is intended to accelerate the transition towards a greener, more sustainable transport system and to boost the uptake of electric vehicles across the region.

Applications will be gathered and assessed by Pobal, who will provide guidance on the scheme generally and who will offer direct support to applicants. The deadline for receipt of applications is 28th September 2023 and for further information on how to apply, visit
