3rd March 2021

Virtual Summit


With the increasingly urgent need to achieve Ireland’s target emissions levels, there is now significant industry and Government pressure on electric, hybrid, hydrogen and low carbon fuelled vehicles hitting Irish roads, fields and seas as well as the sky over Ireland. The focus will have huge ramifications on the fuel providers in Ireland and knock-on effects for service station forecourts. The industry needs to be ready to adapt and lead the way around these impending changes!

It is vital for the industry to see all these advancements in vehicle technologies and fuel developments as part of a sustainable solution to our environmental problems and to look at the landscape of the market as a whole before committing to certain technologies.

‘Our goal is clear: the members of Fuels for Ireland are going to take every step necessary, to make not only our industry, but also Ireland carbon neutral by 2050’ – Kevin McPartlan, CEO, Fuels for Ireland

These changes in the type of fuel we use, and how we use it to enable a safer and more sustainable community, will affect how we power our road transport, heat Irish homes, power our aviation, agriculture and maritime industries as well as the economy as a whole.

At the Business Post’s inaugural Fuels for Ireland Summit 2021, industry stakeholders will come together to discuss how best to move forward and what this will mean for Ireland, Irish fuel and the industry as a whole, as well as its goal to be carbon neutral by 2050.


  • The latest developments in electric and low carbon fuels, including bio-fuels
  • Exploring how to incorporate alternative fuels into power sources
  • Use of electric and low carbon fuels by the automotive, aviation, maritime and agriculture sectors
  • How to overcome the barriers to widespread adoption with key cross-sector players
