Ireland’s Climate Targets – Climate Action Plan launched

The Government launched its Climate Action Plan yesterday by Taoiseach Leo Varadkar and Minster for Climate Action Richard Bruton at an event at Grangegorman in Dublin.

The plan contains 183 actions that the Government claims will help Ireland meet exacting 2030 EU climate emission targets, as well as a new commitment to make Ireland 100 per cent carbon neutral by 2050. It includes major policy shifts to enable a rapid decarbonisation of the State within 12 years, including targets for putting 1 million electric vehicles on Irish roads; retrofitting of 500,000 homes and achieving 70 per cent renewable energy in power generation. Is this something you would support?

Paddy Phelan, CEO of 3CEA says: “The government recognises the key role played by regional and local authorities and independent, expert agencies such as ourselves in protecting our environment and in coordinating a series of programmes and initiatives on the ground.

3CEA has helped clients achieve over €8,569,000 in cumulative energy savings since 2013. Much of these energy savings were achieved from our work with local authorities on the retrofitting of houses and community buildings, lighting, heating and solar projects and more.”
