The lack of electric chargers in rural Ireland casts serious doubt on the governments ability to deliver it's Climate Action Plan.
That's according to a new survey out today by the Northern and Western Regional Assembly.
The assembly examined the number of public charge points available in each county and found the county with the highest number of chargers was Dublin with 639 with the lowest in Leitrim at just 8.
The Climate Action Plan sets out targets on how we travel and connect with communities.
Economist at the NWRA John Daly says people are suffering from range anxiety.
'There should be two publicly available EV charge points in every town in the north west, and that is the level that residents feel is needed in order to reduce the challenges in terms of range anxiety, but also to encourage the use of EV's .'
