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 are often being first of a kind projects.  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:

Niche Vehicle Network

The Niche Vehicle Network promotes and stimulates R&D collaboration by bringing together independent vehicle manufacturers, system suppliers, automotive technology companies and HEIs, to collaborate on the innovative application of technologies in low-volume vehicle production. Cenex has an employee who works as the programme manager helping to stimulate growth of the Niche Vehicle industry.

Examples of Cenex’ previous programme work include:

Low Carbon Truck Trial

The Low Carbon Truck Trial was 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 aimed to generate a body of evidence to support fleet and government decision making in support of the UK low carbon vehicle agenda.  Working with Atkins, Cenex managed data collection and analysis, taking data from 13 consortia members. Cenex was also responsible for the successful delivery of a conference every six months to present the results to the industry.

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 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 Vehicle 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. With support from Beta Technology, Cenex was the Department for Transport’s delivery partner and managed all aspects of the programme, which included extensive data collection, analysis and reporting.
