‘FOCUS’ WEBINAR: ALTERNATIVE FUELS

The electrification of UK transport is moving at a rapid pace, and while the way UK fleets have embraced this strategy, for some, this is not a feasible solution… yet! In the meantime, there needs to be an alternative clean solution for those operating vehicles that either have not or cannot be electrified. Long haul logistics… Large goods vehicles… RCVs… PSVs… Site equipment and vehicles… All need to be looked at and we are addressing the issues and looking at the solutions. 

Focus Webinar 5, the last in our series for 2022, sees us look at options from GAS TO HYDROGEN, THOUGHT LEADERSHIP, CASE STUDIES and INNOVATIVE SOLUTIONS. Hear from industry experts, join the conversation and help shape the way UK business tackles the alternatives.
