As part of the Government’s strategy to improve air quality across the UK, discouraging the use of older, more polluting, vehicles is key. The goal is to reduce the number of areas in the UK where air pollution breaches legal limits, and city by city, we are helping local, regional and transport authorities kick-start their ‘Clean Air Strategies’. 

October 3rd sees GREENFLEETarrive in Bath. Hosted by Bath and North East Somerset (BANES) Council,  GREENFLEET BATH is being held at The Racecourse and is FREE to attend for fleet professionals looking to explore the very latest in ultra-low emission vehicle technology. Supported by Bristol City, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Councils, under the Go Ultra Low West banner, this will be the most important clean fleet event the region has seen.  

The UK Government has confirmed its ambition to see at least half of new cars to be ultra-low emission by 2030, with the release of their Road to Zero Strategy. Bath is the 7th UK city in 2019 to benefit from hearing how this strategy can benefit the region.

As part of creating a better environment, all the West of England’s local authorities are committed to encouraging the widespread use of electric cars, vans and bikes.

Go Ultra Low West (GULW) is a £7m project to accelerate the purchase of electric vehicle across Bath & North East Somerset, South Gloucestershire, North Somerset and Bristol. The initiatives included in this project are:

Public Charging Network: Informed by market research, over 120 new charge points will be installed to double the size of the current charging network ‘Source West’.

New Charging Hubs: By 2021 there will be four Rapid Electric Vehicle Charging Hubs in the West of England region. 

New Electric Car Clubs: We are working with West of England car club providers to install charging points for electric car club vehicles.

Business Grants: GULW provide 50% match funding for charge points to be installed in businesses in Bath & North East Somerset, Bristol, North Somerset or South Gloucestershire.

Council Fleets: Each Local Authority in the West of England is converting parts of their diesel- and petrol-powered fleet to electric vehicles. 

Demonstration Vehicles: An opportunity to try out an electric vehicle for two weeks, for only the cost of the electricity used. 

Further information can be found on the GULW website.

Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) have a significant role to play in the West of England cleaning up its air. The authorities have a strategy, and this event will feature keynote presentations and group sessions that will enable YOU to find out more, and more importantly, the role that YOUR BUSINESS has to play.

WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT ON THE DAY?

KEYNOTE PRESENTATIONS

The day begins with a series of keynote presentations from our Event Partners BANES Council, the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) on the UK government’s Road to Zero strategy, and the latest on grants and schemes.

The Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT) EV Group will be there, offering an insight in to what innovative vehicle technology is on the market NOW, and what’s in the pipeline. And if you work for a public sector organisation, we have the very latest on the Frameworks, for the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

SEMINAR SESSIONS

The seminar session is wrapped up with a Q&A, where YOU get the chance to air your thoughts, and interact with the Speakers themselves.

NETWORKING

Share your thoughts and knowledge with experts in legislation, strategy, vehicle technology, charging solutions, leasing and financing and innovative technology. Our breakfast, refreshments breaks, and lunch are all designed to put YOU together, in a relaxed, but professional atmosphere, where you can talk to the people that can help you and your business move down a ‘road-2-zero’!

GROUP SESSIONS

The late morning and afternoon elements of the event will be structured in private, 30-minute sessions. You will be given your very own ‘Personalised Agenda’, designed to ensure that your day is structured, and allows you to engage with experts, and at the same time, ‘experience’ some of the latest technology, first-hand.

TEST DRIVES

It’s one thing being told that these ULEVs can do this, do that, save you £X-amount, etc. but do they really? We believe that having the opportunity to ‘experience’ the vehicles first-hand, by driving them in normal, everyday conditions, is the best way to make your mind up. Part of your Personalised Agenda will give you the opportunity to test drive the very latest in clean car, van and truck technology.

LUNCH & REFRESHMENTS

Your day begins with some breakfast, tea and coffee, and ends in the same way. ‘Sandwiched’ in the middle will be refreshment breaks, as well as a lovely buffet lunch, all designed to ensure that you’re refreshed and fulfilled… And it’s FREE!

MONEY

This event will not only help you make an ‘educated decision’ on how to integrate this innovative technology, with a view to playing your part in the city’s push for cleaner air… but it will also show you how you can SAVE MONEY at the same time! Add to that, that this event is FREE TO ATTEND, and there really is no reason why you shouldn’t APPLY FOR A PLACE NOW at GREENFLEET Bath...
