24 March marks a return to LIVE events for GREENFLEET in 2022 as we begin to take the NET ZER0 ROADSHOW around the UK. We kick-off with GREENFLEET North-West, staged at the Engine Rooms, on Birchwood Park, Warrington.

We will be joined by the UK government’s Office for Zero Emission Vehicles (OZEV), to discuss national clean transport strategies, grants, etc. Homing in on the local north-west will be the NW Energy Hub, and we also welcome SMMT too. And adding some real-life substance to the conversation, we will hear a case study presentation from Lorna McAtear, Fleet Manager for National Grid.

Following the event, if you would like a copy of the Seminar Presentation Slides, please email georgia.christie@psigroupltd.co.uk
