About us

The FASTER Project is a joint initiative across Scotland, Ireland and Northern Ireland to support the overarching ambition to transition to low carbon transport systems and to demonstrate how each of the three jurisdictions can provide early systems learning in relation to electrification of transport.

One of the main barriers to the take up of electric vehicles is the lack of public charging infrastructure and in particular rapid charging infrastructure. The project aims to ensure that the availability of charging stations is not a major obstacle to the Electric Vehicle (EV) market penetration.

The FASTER Project partnership will implement the physical role out and installation of 73 rapid charging stations (50KW capacity and above) in the programme area before 31st December 2023.
