Electric Vehicles for Business

Electric vehicles (EVs) are not only environmentally friendly; they are also good for business.

What are the Benefits of Electric Vehicles for business in Ireland?

  • Tax Benefits: Electric vehicles and associated charging infrastructure qualify for Accelerated Capital Allowances as well as reduced motor tax.
  • Grant Support: SEAI (http://www.seai.ie/) offer a purchase grant of up to €3,800 for N1 category vehicles.
  • Running Costs: Savings on fuel and maintenance costs when compared to petrol or diesel vehicle equivalents.
  • Environmental Image: Electric vehicles can play an integral role in environmental CSR strategies, alongside significantly reducing a business’s carbon footprint.

EVs are fast becoming an economical choice for businesses.

Thermodial, a leader in the Irish building service engineering sector since 1987, has embarked on a 5 year programme to convert its entire vehicle fleet (35 vehicles) to EVs. Commenting on the decision to make the switch, Thermodial Managing Director Turlough Kinane, said “Energy management is a rising global theme that is very relevant to our business as reflected by our attainment of the ISO 14001:2015 – Environmental Management System in 2016. We didn’t take long to first assess and then invest on the basis that it is the right thing for us to do both professionally, environmentally and financially too.”

The company has already made the move to phase-in new electric vans (zero-emissions Nissan eNV200s) as old, diesel-powered vehicles reach replacement age. The entire Thermodial fleet will be 100% electric by 2022.
