25 JUNE 2020
GREENFLEET North West is a FREE-TO-ATTEND ONLINE event, for professionals looking to explore the very latest in ultra-low emission vehicle technology, charging, sustainability and strategy. Beginning at 10.00am on the 25 June 2020, the event will outline the region’s own Strategy, with comment from UK100, Transport for Greater Manchester and Liverpool City Region Combined Authority, together with the Office for Low Emission Vehicles.
Clean vehicle technology insight will be provided by supported by Toyota (GB) plc, Maxus UK and Kia Motors UK, with a glimpse in to what’s coming and it’s application to the clean air strategy, from the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders.
And we wrap up with a look at Charging & Infrastructure, with national insight coming courtesy of National Grid, a regional piece from Local Energy North West and then how to implement the solutions, from ubitricity.
WHY SHOULD YOUR BUSINESS CONSIDER MAKING THE SWITCH?
The Government’s 'Road to Zero' strategy outlines how the government will support the transition to zero emission road transport and reduce emissions from conventional vehicles during the transition. The strategy is long term in scope and ambition, supporting the Clean Growth Industrial Strategy and considers the change, opportunities and risks up to 2050 and beyond. To achieve this, the UK needs to discourage the use of older, more polluting vehicles and reduce the number of areas in the UK where air pollution breaches legal limits.
Where are these reductions required? Within YOUR Business! City by city, the GREENFLEET Road-2-Zero Roadshow is helping local, regional and transport authorities kick-start their 'Clean Air Strategies'.
Take the 'ULEV Journey', together...
Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) have a significant role to play in cleaning up the 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 must play.
There is no need to do this alone... The Road-2-Zero Roadshow will highlight how YOUR AUTHORITY and the UK GOVERNMENT can help YOUR business embark on a 'ULEV Journey', together!
It makes financial sense ...
- Cars with CO2 emissions of less than '50g per kilometre' have been able to claim a capital allowance worth 100% against the purchase.
- The maximum grant available for new electric cars is £3,000 while the maximum for a new electric van is £8,000.
- Fully zero tail-pipe emission cars costing up to £40,000 and with zero tailpipe emissions, are exempt from all road tax in the UK.
- From April 6th 2020, there will be NO benefit-in-kind charge on electric cars with emissions of up to 50g/km CO2, potentially saving nearly £5,000 a year.
- According to a comparison carried out by The Greengage, an electric car can cost as little as 2.6p per mile, as opposed to petrol cars, with a cost of 9.4p per mile.
The Road-2-Zero Roadshow will highlight that 'making the switch' makes financial sense to YOUR business... and YOUR staff!
WHAT CAN YOU EXPECT ON THE DAY?

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 region’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, ONLINE, and there really is no reason why you shouldn’t APPLY FOR A PLACE NOW!
