emergency GREENFLEET II will once again deliver the key information that the police, fire, ambulance and MoD sectors need, as they embark on their electrification strategies.
Following the successful launch of this new event in the GREENFLEET portfolio, back in April, we are delighted to be running the second event scheduled for 2020, with the support of our Partners – Office for Low Emission Vehicles, Crown Commercial Service, National Grid and SMMT, with additional guidance coming from NAPFM and Ministry of Defence.
Join us on 15 October, from 09.30, for an online gathering of professionals and experts, where you can engage, exchange ideas, discuss strategies, form alliances, and more.
Delivered on our new platform, that now has an enhanced EXPO feature, there will be extra time for you to roam around, freely, and discover more about the vehicles, products and solutions that are there to help you on your electrification journey.
Electrification… Can it be done?
As the UK government continues to drive home the ‘Net Zero’ message and looks at bringing forward the date of the ICE vehicle ban from 2040 to 2035, the UK fleet sector is trying to keep pace and make the necessary changes to ensure this happens. The ‘blue light’ sector is no different, in that sense, but where it does differ is in the challenges it faces, outside of the normal ‘vehicle choice’ conundrum.
emergency GREENFLEET recognises this and have put together a programme that is designed to not only give you the very latest from UK government, but also highlight the products, services and solutions that are out there too. And to make sure that you can see what is possible, we have drafted in some case study models too, delivered by innovative, forward-thinking blue light fleet managers. But we also realise it’s not simply about the vehicles and the charge points. What about ‘maintenance and upkeep’? Well, we have that covered too. Check out what we have planned for you, on the day…

NEW: The emergency GREENFLEET Break-Out Sessions
Once the keynote sessions are complete, we move to a new function, added to ensure YOU get the most out of joining us on the day.
GF365 has been adapted to offer break-out sessions where YOU get the chance to join a ‘room’ and hear more from the presenters on their specialist subjects, and they will also be joined by additional experts, on-hand to make sure you leave the event with everything you need to move forward with your electrification strategy.
The fully interactive rooms make it possible for you to ‘join’ the experts, LIVE, via your webcam, or simply through the Chat function. And you don’t have to choose just one room either… You can move from ‘room to room’, at the click of a button, join the debate(s) and ensure your questions are answered.
At GREENFLEET we have been working hard, behind the scenes, to adapt the ways in which we can still help deliver the very latest, quality information that you come to expect. And at the same time, we have developed a platform that will enable you to network and engage with leaders and experts that can help you in your quest to implement a smarter and cleaner transport operation.
So, now is NOT the time to sit back, relax and do nothing. As busy professionals, there is still work to be done… There is still work that CAN be done… And done from the safety and comfort of your workplace, your home office, or even your sofa.
