Aldi to double number of EV chargers at stores in Ireland

Aldi Ireland is doubling the number of EV chargepoints over the next 12 months as part of its drive towards a more sustainable future.

A total of 41 additional EV charging points are scheduled for installation over the next 12 months in Wexford, Galway, Louth, Dublin, Meath, Kerry, Cork and Mayo. A total of 79 EV charging points will be available across 19 Aldi stores.

Shoppers can already charge their electric vehicles at Aldi stores across Dublin, Cork, Meath, Wicklow, Kildare, Cavan, Mayo and Kerry. The charging points are currently free to use and are powered by 100% green electricity, as are all Aldi stores nationwide.

Aldi’s initiative aims to support the Government’s National EV Charging Infrastructure Strategy, which prioritises the delivery of rapid charge points over the next five years to facilitate the Government’s target of having almost a million EVs on Irish roads by 2030.

Niall O’Connor, Aldi Group Managing Director said: “We want to help Aldi shoppers live more sustainable lives and are constantly looking at new, innovative ways to make it easier for them shop with Aldi. By increasing our EV charging offering across our store network, our aim is to support customers in making environmentally friendly choices so that together we can work towards a greener future.”
