GREENFLEET Yorkshire is a FREE-TO-ATTEND for fleet professionals looking to explore the very latest in ultra-low emission vehicle technology. Taking place at Castle Park, Doncaster on the 20th February 2020, you can expect to hear the latest in Government Policy, with support from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles and gain insight into the latest vehicles available. 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. If you work for a public sector organisation, we have the very latest on the Frameworks, from the Crown Commercial Service (CCS).

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’.

The current structure of motor tax reflects this. Cars with CO2 emissions of less than “50g per kilometre” have been able to claim a capital allowance worth 100% against the purchase. And that is not the only perk. Electric cars also qualify for a £3,500 plug-in grant. With the support from the Office for Low Emission Vehicles, you can expect to find out more about the grants and incentives available for YOUR BUSINESS at GREENFLEET Yorkshire.

Tax changes, which come into effect in 2020/2021*, will help to further reduce company car tax bills. Zero-emission and 100% electric cars will pay no company car tax in 2020/21. From April 6th 2020, there will be NO benefit-in-kind charge on electric cars with emissions of up to 50g/km CO2. Therefore, choosing an electric model as a company car could save nearly £5,000 a year.

Comparatively, electric vehicles are cheaper to run too. According to a comparison carried out by The Greengage, an electric car can cost as little as 2.6p per mile, as opposed to a petrol car, with a cost of 9.4p per mile. The Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders (SMMT) will be on hand to show YOU what is up-and-coming and what is available now so that YOU are well informed to make the right decisions for your businesses fleet.

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.

So, the event will feature keynote presentations and group sessions that will enable YOU to find out more, and more importantly, the role that YOUR ORGANISATION must play, to help clean growth in the UK, as part of the UK Strategy.

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 into 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 a 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
