Energy Cork, the industry cluster for the energy sector in Cork is working on various initiatives to promote Cork as a low carbon transport hub.
As a result of our successful Cork Transport Alternatives 2022 conference in 2014, Energy Cork prepared a road-map for Cork to become a low-carbon vehicle hub. This document is available here cork-a-low-carbon-vehicle-hub
Energy Cork has already collaborated successfully with major employers in Cork, the motor industry, and with MaREI and UCC on the very successful Drive4Zero initiative ( www.drive4zero.ie) promoting electric vehicles (EV’s) for personal transport in the Cork region.
Energy Cork are now progressing a second initiative to promote gas vehicles (CNGV’s) for public and freight transport – Ireland’s Greenest Bus Fleet (IGBF) .
We are proposing that the first phase of the IGBF will be the conversion of the 220X/223 bus route to the lower harbour /Ringaskiddy area from diesel to gas and ultimate carbon zero bio-gas i.e. Ireland’s Greenest Bus Route(IGBR).
