About the Project
The FASTER Project is led by East Border Region Ltd supported by 6 project partners and 15 associate partners.
The FASTER Project is a joint initiative by partners in Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland to support the overarching ambition to transition to low carbon transport systems. The project partnership will implement the physical roll out and installation of 73 rapid (50KW capacity) electric vehicle charging stations in the programme area before May 2023. The FASTER Project aims to ensure that the availability of public charging stations is not a major obstacle to Electric Vehicle (EV) market penetration. The FASTER project has been awarded €6,407,513.23 from the European Union’s INTERREG VA Programme, managed by the Special EU Programmes Body.

The FASTER Network
The FASTER Project will install 73 rapid charging stations across the programme area with sites in Northern Ireland, Republic of Ireland (Border Region) and Western Scotland. The map shows the locations of all public charging infrastructure and as the FASTER Project charging points are installed they will be added to this map to ensure that EV owners can plan their journeys across the project regions.
