The Greener HGV Programme

Enjoy target fuel savings of 10% and reduce your annual fuel bill by €000s!

Transport is one of the sectors that has been identified to help Ireland reach its 80% target reduction in CO2 emissions by 2050. The Greener HGV Programme will bring real fuel savings by subsidising the use of innovative technology and driver training for Irish Fleet companies.

The Climate Action Fund

By 2050, the Climate Action Fund aims to reduce CO2 emissions by at least 80% compared to 1990 levels, from sectors including Transport. The fund supports initiatives that contribute to the achievement of Ireland’s climate and energy targets in a cost-effective manner. It offers the potential for innovative interventions like the Greener HGV Programme which the Irish Government have partnered with the 3 Counties Energy Agency and Cubo to deliver.

The Greener HGV

Irish Fleet companies can apply to this programme to avail of a 30% technology software & hardware grant. This technology coupled with the development of a professional driving culture of HGVs will result in a reduction of the business’ carbon footprint. It will bring target fuel savings of 10% and reduce the annual fuel bill by €000s.
