Vice Chair David Laoide-Kemp represented ITS Ireland and the NRA at the European Green Transport Conference organised by Enterprise Ireland on 5th May. A presentation was made by David to the conference regarding how ITS can be an appropriate tool for enacting green transport policy, and how ITS Ireland can provide policy advice and facilitate future development in this area. A following open forum discussion highlighted the growing significance of electric vehicles. In the afternoon David chaired an ITS-themed Workshop, again looking at and discussing how the improvement in the efficiency of a transport system through utlising ITS will ultimately reap the rewards by the result of lower emissions.
