Seven projects receive €77m under Government’s Climate Action Plan, and including the 4 projects for the Road Transport.
A renewable gas facility, an eCars charging network, LED street lanterns and 1000 commercial vehicles with an installed telematic system are among seven projects being funded in the first round of the Government’s Climate Action Fund.
Shortly after the Irish Government admitted that we had no hope of reaching our carbon emission reduction targets for 2020, it has now revealed its plans to at least reduce this significantly in the decades that come afterward.
This morning (28 November), An Taoiseach Leo Varadkar, TD, and Minister for Communications, Climate Action and Environment Richard Bruton, TD, announced that seven projects are to receive €77m under the first round of the Government’s new Climate Action Fund, developed as part of Project Ireland 2040.
Last May, the fund was signed off to provide at least €500m to support initiatives that could make major steps to reducing Ireland’s carbon footprint in the world. Under this first round, almost 100 applications were received, with the seven selected projects expected to leverage €300m as a result.
