Cenex is working in partnership with Nottingham City Council to help deliver the City and regions ambition to be a global leader in low carbon mobility. This partnership approach has resulted in Nottingham being awarded “Go Ultra Low City” status by the UK Government’s Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV).
Cenex provided support to develop the Nottingham “Go Ultra Low” programme and is now assisting with delivery. Technical expertise from Cenex engineers is being used to identify the most advantageous locations for charging infrastructure and to procure a suitable provider of hardware and back office systems. The city council fleet is being analysed to identify opportunities for using low carbon vehicles as part of day to day operations without hampering operational performance or increasing costs.
Cenex advisors have provided technical input for a low carbon vehicle business support programme and advice on a workplace charging grant scheme.
The long standing partnership between Cenex and Nottingham has also led to joint opportunities to attract additional funding for innovation projects. Research and development experts, from Cenex and Nottingham, are currently developing proposals for vehicle 2 grid demonstrators and electric tipper truck trials.
