Diarmuid Leahy (4th Year Electronic & Computer Engineering) is pictured presenting his final year project report which covered a feasibility study on the installation of charging points to the UL Energy Manager, Dr. Chris Fogarty.
Diarmuid, who presented his work accompanied by his supervisor Dr. Tom Conway from the Dept of Electronic & Computer Engineering, has recommended that
- Limerick Smarter Travel should use funding allocated for EV’s to promote EV’s as a practical, environmentally sustainable and cost effective means of travelling throughout the UL campus and greater Limerick City area.
- UL’s Environmental Committee should put pressure on ESB ecars to install EV charging stations on campus as soon as possible.
- ESB ecars should allow private companies into the EV public charger market in Ireland
An overview of the findings can be found below
