Programme Development

Cenex specialises in long duration (multi-year) programme management for low carbon vehicles and infrastructure projects, typically delivered on behalf of regional and government organisations.  The scope of Cenex activities cover the design, delivery, implementation, management, assessment and reporting of the outputs of programmes.

Many of these programmes are characterised by their technical nature and their often being first of a kind.  Cenex’ success in delivering these programmes has been based on in-depth sector knowledge, combined with creative programme design and rigorous project management.

Our previous experience and expert team makes us a market leader in this field. Cenex welcomes discussions with stakeholders looking for a successful, reliable and dedicated partner to aid the implementation of new programme and project work.

Cenex’s programme work includes:

Plugged-In Midlands

National charging infrastructure for electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles is becoming a reality, with Government agencies, local councils and private businesses all coming together to create an effective network of charging points across the UK. Cenex has helped clients to install more than 850 charge points in the East and West Midlands.

Completed June 2014. For more information, click here.


The Low Carbon Vechile Public Procurement Programme (LCVPPP) aimed to accelerate the introduction of lower carbon technologies onto the UK vehicle market, with the ultimate objective of reducing overall carbon emissions from the vehicle fleet. Cenex is the Department for Transports delivery partner and managed the data analysis and collection on the programme.

Low Carbon Truck Trial

The Low Carbon Truck trial is co-funded by the Innovate UK, the Department for Transport and the Office for Low Emission Vehicles. The programme set out to demonstrate low carbon truck technologies in real-world settings.  As well as priming the UK market with a series of accessible gas refuelling stations, the programme will provide a body of evidence to support fleet and government decision making in support of the UK low carbon vehicle agenda.  Cenex is a delivery partner working on the management of data collection and analysis, taking data from 13 consortia members. Cenex is also responsible for the successful delivery of a conference every six months to present the results to the industry.
