Sustainable EV Tour arrives in Ireland to raise awareness of ocean acidification

The Divers Alert Network (DAN) Sustainable EV Tour 2022 will arrive in Ireland next week, promoting electric vehicles and sustainability to help combat ocean acidification. The team aim to meet as many people as possible to explore ways in which they can help towards solving the global acidification threat, which damages marine life. 

Their next stop is Ireland, where DAN sustainability reps Alana Alvarez and Manu Bustelo will continue their tour – carbon-neutrally – in a 100% electric Hyundai Kona SUV, visiting Galway, Cork and Dublin. They will be holding events at the Dive Academy in The Aran Islands, Oceanaddicts in Kinsale, Oceans of Discovery Dive Center in Robert’s Cove, Cork and OCEANDIVERS in Bray.  

Sustainable EV Tour to raise awareness of ocean acidification

Electric vehicle infrastructure is crucial to supporting the health of our oceans  

Alana Alvarez and Manuel Bustelo (DAN Europe Ambassadors) alongside the DAN team, are travelling across the country using an electric vehicle (Hyundai), educating people in schools, diving and swimming clubs on making the activity safer, more accessible, and sustainable.

The DAN team is only using IONITY’s high-power charging stations on the UK tour because the chargers exclusively use electricity that is generated from renewable sources of energy.

IONITY enables electric travel for everyone in Europe, helping to decarbonise the transport and mobility sector that is responsible for a quarter of all greenhouse gas emissions in the EU. Decarbonisation needs electrification and electrification needs infrastructure. That’s why IONITY is building a pan-European high-power charging network which is open to electric vehicles of all brands.
