Key insights into electric vehicles in industry and business were discussed by members of the Large Industry Energy Network (LIEN) at a Sustainable Energy Authority of Ireland (SEAI) event hosted recently by Musgrave at their Headquarters in Airport Road, Cork.
The event was the latest in the LIEN 2017 Event Series bringing together representatives from large Irish industries to share best practise and learn of the latest developments in energy management.
“We were delighted to host this event for the SEAI today” said John Curran, Head of Sustainability Musgrave Group. “At Musgrave, energy management is a priority. Our strategies are designed to minimise the environmental and climate change impacts of our operations through greater efficiency and the use of renewables. For over 10 years we have also employed energy monitoring and targeting systems and prioritised the use of energy efficient technology across our operations and transport systems. We have also set ambitious annual energy reduction targets aimed at cutting emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.” Today’s event provided guidance on the use of electric vehicles in industry and business including SEAI’s support programmes for those considering electric vehicles.
Representatives from Nissan were also available to provide information on electric vehicles and to provide test drives for LIEN attendees and Musgrave colleagues. Musgrave holds the ISO 50001 Energy Management Standard for their Airport Road site and has maintained an electric vehicle charging point since 2007. This charging point is available to staff and the general public.
