Dublin Energy Transition Roadmap


Zero Together: A Roadmap for Dublin's Energy Transition

This Roadmap is the final result of the 3-year TOMORROW process in the pilot city of Dublin.

Zero Together is a unique initiative that is bringing together diverse perspectives and experience from businesses, communities, transport groups, academia and local authorities to work towards the same goal of moving Dublin away from fossil fuels as soon as possible, with the ultimate aim of developing the county into a clean and healthy region to live, work, study and visit.

The purpose of Zero Together is to create and deliver on a shared vision and strategy for a fossil-fuel-free Dublin that is ambitious and inclusive. Zero Together aims to be a catalyst and support for ongoing collaboration, holding decision-makers to account and engaging the people of Dublin in the energy transition.

In July 2021, President Higgins signed Ireland's Climate Action and Low Carbon Development (Amendment) Bill 2021. This bill enshrined into law, a 51% emission-reduction target for 2030 and a carbon-neutrality target for 2050. Every faction of society has a role to play in meeting these targets. Zero Together presents a collaborative roadmap for Dublin's role in the energy transition to ensure these targets are achieved. Section 1 provides background and context to the Zero Together initiative detailing the three core elements driving the process; 1) collaboration, 2) an evidence-base 3) public engagement and communication.
