It's being reported that Northern Ireland will invest some £600,000 (~$986,000 USD) to install 100 additional public charging stations.

Once installed, the region is expected to have nearly 500 public chargers in place.

According to BBC News, the 100 additional chargers will be "set in place at hospitals, health trusts, libraries and local council offices."

The idea with these additional charger installs is to drive up EV adoption in Northern Ireland.

Regional Development Minister Danny Kennedy stated:

"This is a very significant boost for our growing e-car infrastructure in Northern Ireland."
