Today’s Solutions: February 06, 2023

In an attempt to rid itself of its dependency on fossil fuels, Ireland has announced it will ban the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles by 2030. The ban is a part of Ireland’s new climate change plan in which the government hope to see 950,000 electric vehicles on its roads by 2030, supported by a nationwide network of charging stations. By 2025, at least one recharging point will be required at new non-residential buildings with more than 10 parking spaces.

The proposed legislation is part of another 180 measures in the government’s new plan to protect the environment covering sectors such as transport, business, agriculture, housing, and waste management. Each sector’s minister will be responsible for achieving the target, with “penalties” if they are not met. Seeing that Ireland is currently “85 percent dependent on fossil fuels”, they have a quite a bit of work to do.
