Low Carbon Truck Trail Workshop and Review
Heritage Motor Museum,
The Low Carbon Truck trial, co-funded by the TSB, DfT and OLEV, set out to demonstrate low carbon truck technologies in real-world settings and, as well as priming the UK with a series of open access and third party access gas refuelling stations, will provide a body of evidence to support fleet and government decision making in support of the UK low carbon agenda. The trial is set to deploy over 350 low carbon trucks and over 25 refuelling stations. This event, held at the Heritage Motor Centre (Gaydon) allowed for consortium members to discuss their current findings and learn from each other’s experiences of the project, as well as share their work with members of the low carbon community.
