Emergency GREENFLEET will once again deliver the key information that the UK emergency services sector needs, as they embark on their electrification strategies.

Join us online for our ‘Roadmap to Blue Light Electrification’ event… A gathering of professionals and experts, where you can engage, exchange ideas, discuss strategies, form alliances, and more.

The perfect one-stop-shop – Register Now!

As the UK government continues to drive home the ‘Net Zero’ message, with actions including bringing forward the date of the ICE vehicle ban from 2035 to 2030, 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. 

We will look at the design and implementation of your electrification strategy, the grants and schemes available out there, to help make them a reality and how you go about leasing and financing the plans. We have experts from the worlds of charging and infrastructure, driver training, breakdown recovery and much more. 

So, if you are responsible for FLEET/TRANSPORT, FACILITIES/BUILDING, FINANCE and TRAINING, REGISTER NOW for EMERGENCY GF and get involved in the conversation.
