The 2024 Energy in Transport Forum will focus on energy aspects of transport. The transport sector emitted 12.0 MtCO2 in 2021 and accounted for 34% of Ireland's total energy emissions.

Transport remained the most carbon-intensive demand sector, with 95.5% of transport energy demand coming from fossil fuels in 2021. The picture is similar across Europe with renewable energy accounting for 10% in the transport sector, with Sweden leading the way with 34%.

The forum will focus on the use of energy by the transport sector and how we can increase the amount of renewable energy used in the sector, either directly or through electrification – the electricity sector is generating increasing amounts from renewable sources, with a target of 80% by 2030.
