2 The Transport Challenge Transport accounted for 21% of Northern Ireland’s total GHG emissions in % of all transport emissions comes from road transport 65% of all transport emissions in 2010 came from cars alone. NI has a dispersed rural population of 1.7 million and a very extensive road network of 25,000km per capita People in NI are very dependent on their private car – over 80% commute to work by car or van everyday 63% of car journeys are less than 5 miles 17% of car journeys are less than 1 mile
3 The Policy Challenge NI Programme for Government target to reduce GHG emissions by 35% by 2025 (on 1990 baseline levels). In 2010, transport emissions in NI increased by 26% on 1990 levels. Fuel prices have increased by 39% in the past 3 years Electric vehicles are part of the solution.
4 UK-wide ULEV Policy Minister Norman Baker launched the government’s strategy to drive forward the ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs) industry in September Vision: By 2050 almost every car and van will be an ultra low emission vehicle with the UK at the forefront of their design, development and manufacture. £500 million of new capital investment between 2015 and 2020 to continue to support the development and adoption of ULEVs in the UK. –a growing fleet of, and private markets for, ultra low emission vehicles (ULEVs) –a network of charging points and other infrastructure making ULEVs an attractive proposition –the development of world class skills and facilities for the development of ULEV technologies leading to global export –a smarter electricity grid to benefit vehicle owners and the electricity system

7 Fast and Rapid Chargers 320 no. 22kW AC Fast Charge Points before summer AC points per post 14 no. 50kW DC Rapid Charge Points before summer AC and 1DC per post No part of Northern Ireland is more than 30 miles from a Rapid charge point Most will be no more than 10 miles from an ecar Fast charge point
8 EU TEN-T Funding ESB ecars and DRD were awarded €1.9million to install a network of rapid charge points in NI and RoI in August Created one of the first international EV highways in the world between Dublin - Belfast. Network of rapid charging points along key inter-urban routes, connecting the roads with other forms of transport such as rail, ferries and air travel. 46 rapid CP’s in RoI, 5 rapid CP’s in NI. Banbridge, Belfast, Omagh, Enniskillen and Derry/Londonderry EU funding proportioned to NI is approximately £500,000, with 50% from the TEN-T fund and 50% from OLEV.
9 Interoperability Integrated charge point management system across NI and RoI CP’s in NI and RoI can be accessed using the same Access cards Payment system is being developed with INTEL – with delivery expected by the end of this year Creating the ability to charge internationally using different currencies across an EU border

12 6 th, 7 th, 8 th March 13 at Titanic Belfast to coincide with Climate Week Day 1 – Education Day 260 school children (17-18yrs) ‘Great Electric Debate’ & prize-giving EV Test-drives on ‘electric avenue’ David Meade EV related ‘mind-trick’ Day 2 – Fleet Conference Wide range of excellent speakers on business incentives, tax incentives, purchasing and leasing, charging points Launch of Website and Phone App Test-drives on ‘electric avenue’ Day 3 – Public Test-drive event Presentations and videos every hour Test-drives on ‘electric avenue’ ecar Multi-Day Event
13 Future look and challenges This year - 40 charge points in tourist destinations/hotels to link with NITB marketing UK TEN-T funding bid – rapid charge point network linking NI and RoI with the UK Ecar PAYG enabled CPMS and payment system Create an ecar electricity Tariff and booking system
