Push For EV Centre of Excellence

Taken from an interview with our Chairperson, Stephen O’Brien, on Midlands 103 on Thursday, 16 November 2023.

A case is being made to move a proposed EV Centre of Excellence from a major midlands town, to a more rural area.

Minister for Higher Education Simon Harris announced earlier this week the new National Training Centre for Electric Vehicle Technicians will be based in Mullingar.

However, the Castlepollard Local Development Group argues its town is an ideal location for the centre.

Chairperson Stephen O’Brien outlines why this would be a good solution.
