If you’re an installer of electric vehicle chargers in Ireland, you can now easily obtain a myenergi Zappi charger for your clients, as the company has launched a new subsidiary in the country.
Located in Ballycastle, myenergi’s new subsidiary is a key expansion for the company into the Irish market. The firm’s Zappi charger is already popular in the UK, especially for those with solar panels, with Irish consumers now also gaining more choice for their EV charging needs.
The decision to launch in Ireland comes as the country experiences a massive uptick in demand for electric vehicles. By August last year, there were more than 17,000 EVs on the road in Ireland, with a Government target in place to reach 936,000 by 2030. This target, which includes battery EVs and plug-in hybrid EVs, will be equivalent to one-third of the 2.8 million vehicles that are currently in use.
Jordan Brompton, co-founder and CMO of myenergi, commented, “Unveiling our subsidiary in Ireland is our latest step in an ambitious programme of international expansion. With Pearse McHenry at the helm, we’re confident that we can build on our strong market presence with on-the-ground expertise and knowledge.
“Pearse has been a driving force in the myenergi journey since the very beginning. Supported by the Irish government’s commendable plans for a cleaner future, we cannot think of a better person to help grow myenergi in Ireland.”
Ireland will not be myenergi’s only subsidiary, with international operations already located in Germany and Benelux, and more to be announced shortly. The brand itself has grown significantly in 2020, resulting in the employment of more than 120 staff and requiring the relocation of the UK headquarters to a purpose-built 15,500 square foot flagship facility.
