Driven to succeed in electric car market

By Trish Dromey

Eveo Solutions has become the first Irish manufacturer of electric charging stations after spotting a gap in the market, and has the UK and Norway firmly in its sights, writes Trish Dromey.
Believing in the future of the electric car, Dublin company Eveo Solutions has become the first Irish manufacturer of electric charging stations.

Having already supplied a number of charging stations to the ESB for installation around Ireland, it has now secured contracts in the UK and is currently starting to export.

CEO Theresa Keady says Eveo is focusing its efforts this year on developing the UK market and will also be turning its attention to Norway, which currently has more than 10,000 electric cars, the highest number per capita in the world.

The company expects that breakthrough on battery technology, a reduction in electric vehicle prices and nationwide rollout of charging infrastructure will lead to electric cars being much more widely used within the next few years

According to Ms Keady the electric vehicle market is presently being driven by the need to bring down CO2 emissions as well as concerns about air quality and rising oil prices.

In 2010, she was working in the parking industry supplying parking equipment to local authorities when she learned through Enterprise Ireland that the ESB was looking for companies to provide electric charging stations.
