September 2019 - August 2022
The Dublin Energy Transition Roadmap sets out to motivate a range of stakeholders such as businesses, communities, academia and public bodies to work together towards the same goal of developing Dublin as a sustainable, healthy, leading carbon-neutral region by 2050.
What is the Dublin Energy Transition Roadmap?
The Dublin Energy Transition Roadmap (DETR) sets out to motivate a range of stakeholders such as businesses, communities, academia and public bodies to work together towards the same goal of developing Dublin as a sustainable, healthy, leading carbon-neutral region by 2050.
Codema is developing this roadmap together with the four Dublin Local Authorities, Smart Dublin and the Dublin CARO and as part of this, we are coordinating a team of frontrunners from a range of sectors to develop a shared vision and agree on a clear set of actions for the best pathways for Dublin's energy transition.
Why are we Developing the Roadmap?
No single organisation, individual or sector can fully transform Dublin into a clean, healthy and sustainable city. However, by motivating local communities, businesses and public authorities to work together towards the same goal and empowering citizens to take ownership of this transition, we can achieve a carbon-neutral Dublin that has many local benefits and a positive global impact.
The Scale of the Challenge
We would need to remove the equivalent of taking 57,000 cars off Dublin's roads every year for the next 30 years in order to make Dublin carbon neutral. That's the scale of the challenge and this reinforces the importance of involving all sectors and citizens in the development of the Dublin Energy Transition Roadmap.
How will the Roadmap Get Us There?
- The formation of a Transition Team (including frontrunners from a range of sectors across Dublin) to coordinate the Roadmap process
- Codema to provide the evidence-base to inform the roadmap and facilitate the roadmap process
- Citizen and stakeholder networking and engagement to collaboratively develop the roadmap
- Cross-sector commitment to implement the actions set out in the roadmap
Our Transition Team
Our Transition Team will include a number of frontrunners from a range of sectors who will use their their passion, expertise and agency for the successful creation of Dublin's Energy Transition Roadmap to 2050. They will also align their work, knowledge and expertise with the roadmap, informing their networks as to howthey can collaborate and taking ownership of the roadmap process.
We have just recruited a number of frontrunners to join our existing team, with our Transition Team workshops beginning in September.
