Compressed Natural Gas (CNG) is a cleaner, affordable and proven fuel choice for HGV and bus fleets.
Grant support for CNG vehicles
Ireland has committed to transitioning to a low carbon economy by 2050 and the transport sector has a significant role to play.
To help drive immediate emissions savings, Gas Networks Ireland and the Department of Transport have vehicle grant schemes in place that make the transition to cleaner CNG vehicles even more affordable and attractive to fleet operators.

A gateway to renewable gas and hydrogen for transport
Renewable gas, which is entirely compatible with existing gas infrastructure, technology and vehicles, is now flowing onto the national gas network. As Ireland gradually replaces natural gas with renewable gas, vehicles refuelling from the gas network will increasingly reduce their carbon footprint without changing a thing.
Even greater emissions savings can be realised through hydrogen. Vehicles operating on compressed hydrogen produce no carbon emissions and can significantly improve air quality in towns and cities. Gas Networks Ireland has established a Hydrogen Innovation Centre in Dublin to ensure the safe transportation and use of hydrogen on the national network, and is collaborating on a variety of hydrogen research initiatives and with bodies including GENCOMM, Hydrogen Mobility Ireland and Hydrogen Ireland Association, to assess applications for hydrogen, including its use in transport.
Gas Networks Ireland recently participated in an international decarbonisation study entitled ‘The future role of gas in transport’. The report looked at decarbonisation options for the transport sector including the production, distribution and use of electricity, biomethane, hydrogen and other fuels, and lays out an ambitious road map for the decarbonisation of HGV transport in the UK, beginning with biomethane and transitioning to hydrogen. The full report and findings can be found here.
