  • 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
