In this episode Dr Lara Dungan will investigate how Ireland could mainstream electric vehicles, introducing an eco-friendly replacement to the combustion engine on a country wide scale. She’ll also examine what new innovations are in place to make this transition a real prospect for Ireland. Society is now at the cusp of benefiting from accelerated technology innovations in electrifying transport, with tech that makes cars more efficient, reliable, and longer-lasting. This kind of roll-out is essential to Ireland lowering its emissions to meet EU-mandated targets, but uptake has been exceptionally slow. The government revised its targets from 230,000 to just 20,000 EVs on the roads by 2020 last year, with a pledge that all new cars and vans sold would be “zero-emissions capable” by 2030. Lara will investigate why electric vehicles are not yet being purchased in significant numbers, and what can be done to encourage uptake.
