Integrated telematics market leader, Corcra, has partnered with 3CEA to deliver this programme

The Greener HGV Programme has just been launched.  This Irish Government approved initiative is subsidised by the Climate Action Fund as part of Project Ireland 2040. Transport has been identified as one of the sectors that can help Ireland reach its 80% target reduction in CO2 emissions. Corca is partnering with the 3 Counties Energy Agency to deliver the Programme which commits to deliver real fuel savings by supplying and installing innovative technology and delivering professional driver training to Irish road transport fleet companies.

Irish operators can apply to this programme and avail of a grant towards the technology, which when coupled with the development of a professional driving culture will result in a reduction of road diesel usage, and in turn, of the business’ carbon footprint.  The 10% target for fuel savings will reduce annual fuel bills by €000s.

How does it work?

All Telematics technology is provided and installed by Corcra (part of the NIBC Group.)  Corcra is a long-established market leader in integrated telematics solutions, supplying thousands of vehicles across Ireland and the UK.  Driver behaviour and vehicle performance will be analysed and interpreted into meaningful information to help applicants increase efficiencies.  In-cab technology provides the driver with real time interventions which facilitates safe and fuel-efficient driving.

There are 4 key phases to the programme:

1.  Installation

2.  Benchmarking

3.  Driver Training (Classroom based or online)

4.  Post training performance review
