Powering the Future:

Embracing Renewable Energy with GMC Utilities Group

At GMC Utilities Group, we are committed to a sustainable and green future, and we're proud to share some exciting developments that are driving us closer to that goal.

From innovative projects like the Greenlink initiative to the introduction of HVO fuel in our GMC van fleet and the ongoing nationwide installation of EV car chargers, we're dedicated to making renewable energy accessible and efficient for all.

The Greenlink Project: Connecting the UK and Ireland with Renewable Energy

The Greenlink project is an ambitious initiative that aims to harness excess electricity generated in the UK and Ireland and supply it to where it's needed most.

This vital infrastructure project will create a high-capacity subsea electricity cable connecting the two countries. The primary goal of Greenlink is to improve energy efficiency, reduce carbon emissions, and enhance energy security for both nations.
Key features of the Greenlink project include:
  • A high-capacity, bi-directional subsea cable that can transmit electricity between the UK and Ireland.
  • Enhanced renewable energy integration by utilizing surplus electricity.
  • Increased energy reliability and access to clean power sources, contributing to the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions.
  • By investing in the Greenlink project, GMC Utilities is playing a pivotal role in the transition to a cleaner, more sustainable energy future for the UK and Ireland.

Embracing Sustainable Mobility with HVO Fuel:

As part of our ongoing commitment to reducing our carbon footprint, we are excited to introduce Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil (HVO) fuel to our GMC van fleet.

HVO is a sustainable alternative to traditional diesel fuel that is derived from renewable sources, such as vegetable oils and animal fats.
HVO offers several benefits, including:
  • Significantly lower greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional diesel fuel.
  • Improved air quality with reduced particulate matter and NOx emissions.
  • Compatibility with existing diesel engines, requiring no modifications or additional infrastructure.
  • By adopting HVO fuel, GMC Utilities is not only reducing our environmental impact but also supporting the growth of sustainable fuel options in the transportation sector.

Nationwide Installation of EV Car Chargers

GMC Utilities Group operates an installation and service maintenance contract for the ESB EV Charging Network Ireland.

To encourage the adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and facilitate the transition to cleaner transportation, we are currently engaged in an extensive nationwide installation of EV car chargers.

Our goal is to make charging infrastructure accessible and convenient for EV owners, promoting sustainable transportation options and reducing reliance on fossil fuels.
Key highlights of our EV car charger installation initiative include:
  • A diverse range of charging options, including fast chargers and destination chargers, strategically placed in urban and rural areas.
  • Seamless access to our charging network through user-friendly mobile apps and payment systems.
  • Support for a variety of EV models, making it easier for consumers to switch to electric vehicles.
  • By expanding the charging infrastructure, GMC Utilities is actively contributing to the growth of the electric vehicle market and helping reduce emissions from the transportation sector.
