About the project

The DRIFT-HDV project aims to improve Ireland’s national capacity to access and apply international and European RD&D methods to achieve decarbonisation in HDV fleet with the goal of Net Zero Emissions by 2050 (NZE2050). The project will provide guidance and support to policy makers and public bodies through results, outcomes and learning regarding electrification in Irish Heavy-Duty Vehicles (HDV) fleet by utilising international and European best practices customised to Irish needs and market. DRIFT-HDV will support solutions to improve the alternative fuel uptake from renewable sources in Irish HDV fleet and provide guidelines to overcome technical and other barriers to the solutions through detailed evaluation of economic, social and environmental impacts, barriers to implementation as well as acceptability of solutions to practitioners.
