simonThe Drive4Zero is a unique and exciting initiative that aims to promote the use of electric vehicles in Ireland using Cork as a pilot area.  This Drive4Zero initiative provides a real opportunity to leverage special savings, unique product offerings and a variety of advantages to convince more people that driving an electric car is the right choice for many reasons.

Several people, organisations, companies and groups have come together to make Drive4Zero a reality.  The initiative has been spearheaded by Minister for Agriculture, Food & Marine with responsibility for Defence, Simon Coveney T.D., who is an electric car driver, electric vehicle (EV) ambassador and a passionate advocate of EVs.

The project team are based at the SFI Centre for Marine Renewable Energy (MAREI) UCC and are co-ordinating the efforts of the Drive4Zero stakeholders and partners.
