Looking for a greener way to travel?

Experience electric vehicles and technology first hand at Leigh Court on Friday 20th May. After the West of England was awarded £7 million to boost the take up of low emission vehicles, find out how a change could benefit your business.

After the West of England secured £7million from government to improve the take up of low emission vehicles, GreenFleet West is back! 

Bristol will now become the second Go Ultra Low (GUL) City to host a GreenFleet Car and Plug-In Technology event.

GreenFleet West is being staged in association with the Office for Low Emissions Vehicles (OLEV) and Bristol City Council, along with Bath & North East Somerset, North Somerset and South Gloucestershire Councils. The event will be held at Leigh Court, the HQ of our Event Partners, Business West, on Friday 20th May 2016.

Why should you attend?

  • Are you looking for a greener way to travel that benefits both the environment and your budget?
  • Do you lack knowledge on EV’s, PHEV’s and Charging, and want to find out more?
  • Do you feel as though you are battling excessive fuel and running costs?

This event will enable you and your colleagues to experience the vehicles first hand, speak to the manufacturers and solution providers, as well as discuss matters with the UK Government.

Don’t delay… Book your place today… Spaces are limited!

Visitors will get the benefit of one-to-one sessions with experts in electric vehicles and infrastructure, all within a day designed to help stimulate the adoption of EV’s on the regions streets.

Industry experts will present keynote presentations on the day, highlighting the collaborative vision for a greener region, plus the latest on car, van and charging grants. Talking on the day will be senior officials from OLEV, plus the councils themselves, along with some of the major OEMs producing the vehicles that can make this all a reality.

Attendees will also get the chance to hear from Nina Skubala, Initiative Manager at Business West, who will give an update on the latest business involvement and why you should embrace low emission travel.

So…. if your organisation is based in the Bristol, Bath, Weston, Cheltenham, Gloucester or Salisbury areas, or somewhere in between, and you run vehicles in and around the region, then GreenFleet WEST will demonstrate how this CAN be done in an EV or PHEV.

GreenFleet WEST will be hosted by Quentin Willson and the day consists of TEST DRIVES, group workshops, informative seminars and there will also be a chance to network and share industry knowledge.

Our headline sponsor for this event is Alphabet, who are a leading provider of Business Mobility, with both car and commercial vehicle funding and management expertise. They will also be able to share industry knowledge, discuss leasing and funding options and show you how plug-in vehicles can fit in to your everyday transport operation.
