UK freight operators interested in alternative fuels and retrofit technology to reduce fleet emissions are invited to a free-to-attend LoCITY event on 20 March.

The event is the largest in a series of four roadshows, provided by TfL, which will bring together operators, vehicle manufacturers and technology experts to explore market-ready alternatives to using diesel in commercial vehicle fleets.

Electric, gas, hydrogen, biodiesel and KERS technology will all be explored at the event, as well as giving operators the chance to find out about available grants and vehicle trials from Innovate UK, TfL and OLEV representatives.

There will also be the opportunity to take a look at a wide range of alternative fuelled vans and lorries on the day and talk to manufacturers about the best fit for your operation, as well as explore current leasing and finance options.

Prominent operators who have already committed to using non diesel fuels in their fleets will be taking part in the event to share their journey so far with delegates: these include John Lewis Partnership, O’Donovan Waste Disposal, CitySprint, Martin Brower and Red Kite Management, with more added regularly.

The event, called Fuels in Action, will take place on 20 March at Kempton Park Race Course, Sunbury-on Thames. It is free to attend, but you must register in advance to be sure of a place.
