11.9.2012 GreenFleet Scotland now in fourth year
Visitors to GreenFleet Scotland in Edinburgh will be given the opportunity see and experience the latest low emission vehicles, including the Vauxhall Ampera, Nissan LEAF and a number of low emission combustion engine cars.
To take place at Ingliston in Edinburgh on September 16th, 2012 will be the fourth year that the GreenFleet event has been staged, in association with the Energy Saving Trust and O2.
This year's event will see 4 seminar sessions, with the theme being "2020 Vision – Where Green Becomes Clear". We move from the combustion engine, driver training and fuel efficient driving technology on to what we can expect from the manufacturers. Sessions will also address the Plugged-in Places (PiP) and Plugged-in Fleets initiatives (PiFi), the leasing of EVs with case studies, and also a session on hydrogen.
Ian Murdoch, EST Scotland, stated: "With staggering results demonstrated by last year's Fuel Efficient Driving Experience, people will undoubtedly be interested in taking fuel efficient driver training sessions.
He continued, "In Scotland, EST can offer individuals fuel efficient driver training at a heavily subsidised cost of £12 for 50 minutes of training. Average results from this training are 15% of fuel saving. This can equate to two months' worth of fuel. So for £12 you can potentially save hundreds of pounds."
Amongst many other manufacturers, Volvo will be showcasing four of its most environmentally friendly models, including the 94 g/km all-new V40. The V40 will be joined by the established S60 and V60 D2 SE versions with respective CO2 emissions of 114g/km and 119g/km.
Volvo will also be able to provide information about the philosophy and technology involved in its up and coming plug-in V60 D6 AWD, to be the world's first diesel electric plug-in hybrid, due for launch in early 2013 with emissions of just 49 g/km.
David Room, Sales Manager for Elektromotive commented: "The show was well balanced with focused seminars. A secondary benefit in being a comparatively small event allowed our team time to understand the specific requirements and needs of our visitors. This has been reflected in our commercial success as since the show – Elektromotive have installed over 100 standard charging points and three rapid chargers across Scotland."
Attendance is free of charge to qualifying individuals in the fleet management and associated industries, but places at the event are limited. Make sure you register now with EST.
