South Dublin County Council have implemented a fuel management system to monitor fuel consumption associated with fleet; GPS monitoring also provides information relating to vehicle activity. 

In 2020 South Dublin County Council initiated an Eco Driver training programme to educate drivers on fuel management techniques, helping to reduce emissions and improve road safety.

South Dublin has engaged Energy Elephant to set up a portal as a pilot scheme to monitor and report on energy consumption across the organisation. When fully adopted, the system will monitor and report on electricity use in buildings, facilities and public lighting, fuel consumption for heating buildings and fuel use for transportation.
