ESB Networks briefs businesses on infrastructure, electric vehicles and smart technologies

ESB Networks will brief Chamber members on the latest developments in infrastructure, the electrification of heat and transport and smart technology for business at a series of events around the country.

The briefing will enable members to learn about the business opportunities that improving electricity infrastructure and technology will bring to Waterford.

An adequate provision of electricity is essential for the business community. ESB Networks has made progress in addressing the infrastructure needs at a local level and has ensured that vital projects have been connected. Continued improvement to our infrastructure will be crucial in the coming years as businesses expand. The briefing will offer the opportunity to learn about the work currently being undertaken and about plans for the future.

This is a fantastic opportunity to update businesses on the investment in electricity services at a local level. It’s also an opportunity to connect with businesses to inform them of improvements to ensure cost effective supply and the opportunities in the sector such with electric vehicles and smart technology.
