  • Fleet carbon reduction technology comparison

    Resource

    Vehicle operators are under dual economic and environmental pressure to optimise fuel use and reduce the carbon emissions from fleets. The application of low carbon technologies has the potential to save on fuel costs and reduce CO2 emissions in fleets, but an absence of real-world data can be a disincentive to uptake.

  • Smart Move Trial Case Studies Report

    Resource

    The Smart Move Case Studies report is a timely document as 2011 has marked the introduction of commercially available refined and reliable EVs into the UK from mainstream automotive manufacturers. The market introduction of these EVs has been supported through government grants for vehicles (through the Plug-in Car Grant) and infrastructure (through the Plugged-in-Places programme). […]

  • Smart Move Trial Initial Results Report

    Resource

    Data analysis shows that the operating regime used by vehicle fleets could provide a successful ‘early adopter’ market for electric vehicles. Questionnaire data shows the 58% of fleet users felt re positive about electric vehicles after the trial and 88% of fleet managers felt more positive about incorporating electric vehicles into fleets, stating that the […]

  • Installation of refuelling infrastructure – Natural gas stations for HGVs

    Resource

    The DfT’s Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Grant Programme (AFIGP), managed by Cenex, has provided grant support to help overcome the lack of fuelling infrastructure required for low carbon vehicle deployment.

  • Installation of refuelling infrastructure – Natural gas station for light goods vehicles

    Resource

    The DfT’s Infrastructure Grant Programme (AFIGP) has provided grant support to help overcome the market failure of lack of fuelling infrastructure holding back low carbon vehicle deployment. This project was implemented by gasfill, a company that manufactures slow-fill natural gas refuelling units for cars and vans. The station was installed at the Mercedes Benz UK headquarters in Milton Keynes.

  • Installation of refuelling infrastructure – Charging posts for electric vehicles

    Resource

    This case study highlights best practice from three projects that were funded through the AFIGP. The first project, led by Transport for London, installed 21 charging points across the Greater London boroughs of Camden, Greenwich, Hackney and Westminster.

  • Installation of refuelling infrastructure – AFIGP summary of projects supported

    Resource

    The DfT’s Alternative Fuels Infrastructure Grant Programme (AFIGP) is a grant intervention programme aimed at overcoming one of the market failures inhibiting the acceleration of the deployment of low carbon vehicles needed to meet national road transport decarbonisation targets and local air quality targets.
