An electric vehicle trial will begin on the Dingle Peninsula this week.
ESB Networks is providing 17 electric vehicles for a year, in order to better understand how the electrification of transport will impact its network.
As part of the Dingle Project, the 15 triallists, who work in a variety of sectors, received their cars in recent days, in accordance with current COVID-19 restrictions.
ESB Networks adds that two more electric vehicles will become available when restrictions lift.
This is the latest stage in the Dingle Project, an initiative which deploys a range of new technologies to help develop a smart, resilient, low-carbon electricity network.
