FT Responsibilities

The study involved in-depth analysis of each local authorities vehicle fleet operations, analysis of alternative fuel sectors, an extensive programme of industry and stakeholder engagement, and several knowledge awareness site visits and workshops.

The insights, knowledge and information gained during the study facilitated the carrying out alternative fuel option analysis to identify preferred alternative fuel solutions for each local authority. A feasibility study report was produced to document the study process and conclusions and recommendations. Draft Strategic Roadmaps outlining the way forward for each local authority in relation to their alternative fuel transition were then developed.

FT presented on the results and recommendations of the study at a launch and fielded a Q and A session afterwards. The launch was attended by representatives from each participating local authority, the East Border Region group and the Belfast Met.
