GREENFLEET South East

As part of the Government’s strategy to improve air quality across the UK, discouraging the use of older, more polluting, vehicles is a key objective. 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’.

April 8th saw the introduction of the new Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ), 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, every day of the year within the same area of central London as the Congestion Charge. Most vehicles, including cars and vans, need to meet the ULEZ emissions standards or their drivers must pay a daily charge to drive within the zone.

  • £12.50 for most vehicle types, including cars, motorcycles and vans (up to and including 3.5 tonnes)

  • £100 for heavier vehicles, including lorries (over 3.5 tonnes) and buses/coaches (over 5 tonnes)


The questions, now, are:

Has YOUR business made the changes required to allow you to operate in the area?

Are you unsure as to what your options are, in terms of compliant vehicle technology?

Are you looking for financial help, and need more information?


If you require answers to any or all the above, then look no further… 8th November sees GREENFLEET arrive back in the Capital, and we’re delighted to be joined by the Transport for London and the Greater London Authority as our Hosts. GREENFLEET South East is being held at Plexal, at Here East, on the Queen Elizabeth Olympic Park, Stratford, and we have lined up experts that can help you make the changes required to be ULEZ-compliant, and also do your bit to cleaning up London’s air.

Why Stratford? Here East and Plexal are the designed to be the Innovation Hub for London, with Plexal designed to be a ‘mini city’, utilising the very latest in innovative technology, focusing on Social Inclusion, Cybersecurity and MOBILITY. The idea is to develop sustainable growth and cleaner technology, meaning it’s the perfect fit for an interactive, GREENFLEET event.

London has to lead the way, in cleaning up its air, and the mayor has a strategy to deal with the reduction of both nitrogen dioxide (NO2) and PM10 (particles less than 10 microns) and the Mayor’s London Local Air Quality Management (LLAQM) framework is the statutory process used by local authorities to review and improve air quality within their areas. This new framework was designed to specifically meet London’s needs. The key parts include:

  • Templates and tools, such as air quality data, maps and graphs, to help with action planning and monitoring. The "Action Matrix", for example, can help boroughs assess and prioritise actions to improve air quality

  • A Cleaner Air Borough accreditation for boroughs that effectively monitor and reduce air pollution

  • Information sharing through a regional annual report that highlights air quality projects led by London boroughs

  • The integration of planning into LLAQM – allowing oversight of how and where boroughs are meeting the air quality requirements found in the 'London Plan' and stressing the importance of this area of work


Air quality borough officers can access additional resources and helpful tools via Defra to assist them with LLAQM management.

Ultra-Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) have a significant role to play in London and the South East cleaning up its air. The GLA, the London boroughs and surrounding counties will each 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 and 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...
