IEVOA – 1st Virtual Event – Used EVs

On Saturday 7th November, we hosted our first virtual event of the winter season.  The theme for this first webinar was Used EVs, so, if you are considering buying a used EV or if you are a current EV owner there is something in this event for you.


We had the following speakers and topics lined up:

  • Eamon Stack of Range Therapy, a new not for profit Irish enterprise specialising on EV battery extensions.
  • Elena Wrelton of ELVES who are specialists in reclaiming and recycling EV and Hybrid batteries and developing appropriate training programmes for the industry such as Safe Handling of Electric and Hybrid Vehicles.
  • A panel discussion ‘Buying a used EV’ featuring Irish independent EV specialist dealers including Phil Fitzgerald of Electric Autos.ie, Simon Acton of Next Eco Car and Maciej Gasowski of EV Electric Vehicles.
  • A brief update for the IEVOA committee
  • An open Q & A session.

IEVOA Announcement Regarding 2020 Events

By Simon Acton – October 6th, 2020

As many of you know we had hoped to host a number of regional IEVOA meet-ups during the autumn. We have held off announcing any dates or locations in the hope that the COVID 19 situation would improve.

At this stage it is increasingly clear that this kind of event simply isn’t going to be possible this year. Our priority is the health and safety of our members and the general public so with a heavy heart we will be postponing until Spring 2021 at the earliest.

Regarding the EV Challenge, Dublin-Cork-Dublin or otherwise, this may still be possible as a socially distanced event but we are holding fire on this for now. We could do this anytime of year but with travel restrictions in place for some counties and likely to be extended we can’t plan this for now.

On the upside, we are going to arrange some online events through the autumn and winter, on Zoom, similar to how we hosted the AGM. This will include updates from the committee, contributions from guests from around the industry and Q&A sessions. More details to follow soon.

We hope this goes some way towards compensating for the disappointment of postponing the other events and giving everyone something to look forward to over the coming months.

Best regards,
Simon Acton, IEVOA Chairman
