Under the plans, 41 additional EV charging points are scheduled for installation in Cork, Dublin, Galway, Kerry, Mayo, Meath, Louth and Wexford.

This will mean a total of 79 EV charging points will be available across 19 Aldi stores.

Shoppers can already charge their electric vehicles at the supermarket's locations across Cavan, Cork, Dublin, Kerry, Kildare, Mayo, Meath and Wicklow.

The charging points are currently free to use and are powered by 100% green electricity, as are all Aldi stores nationwide.

Aldi’s initiative aims to support the Government’s National EV Charging Infrastructure Strategy.

This prioritises the delivery of rapid charge points over the next five years to facilitate the Government’s target of having almost a million EVs on Irish roads by 2030.

“We want to help Aldi shoppers live more sustainable lives and are constantly looking at new, innovative ways to make it easier for them to shop with Aldi," the supermarket chain's Group Managing Director Niall O’Connor said in a statement.

"By increasing our EV charging offering across our store network, our aim is to support customers in making environmentally friendly choices so that together we can work towards a greener future.”
