Alan McKinnon – Professor of Logistics

20 September 2019

presentation to Irish Climate Change Advisory Council

Transport is the second largest source of CO2 emissions in Ireland, after agriculture, accounting for just under 20% of emissions.   The country’s Climate Action Plan published in August this year proposed a number of measures to reverse the growth in transport emissions, including ‘having 950,000 electric vehicles on the road by 2030... making growth less transport intensive through better planning, remote and home-working and modal shift to public transport’, increasing the ‘renewable biofuel content of motor fuels’  and setting ‘targets for the conversion of public transport fleets to zero carbon alternatives’.  Little reference is made to freight transport in the Plan, despite the fact that heavy and light goods vehicles accounted for 27% of the transport-related CO2 emissions in 2017.  

Ireland’s Climate Change Advisory Committee is now embarking on a study of the decarbonisation of transport and to start the process held a workshop on the subject in Dublin on the 19 September 2019.  I was invited to give a presentation on the ‘opportunities and challenges’ in decarbonising freight transport.
