The EU Just Transition Fund will support European regions most affected by the transition to climate neutrality by enabling economic development and diversification and helping people adapt to a changing labour market.
Up to €84.5 million has been allocated to Ireland under the EU Just Transition Fund and the Government will also match this funding with Exchequer resources.
The EU Just Transition Fund will support the delivery of Ireland’s Climate Action Plan 2021 and its objectives in relation to a ‘just transition’ in the wider Midlands region in response to the ending of peat extraction for power generation. The EU Just Transition Fund may be used to:
support enterprises to enhance the economic diversification of the wider Midlands
train, up-skill and reskill workers affected by the exit from peat
invest in research and innovation and the deployment of technology
develop systems and infrastructure for clean energy.Back to Calendar
