2018 Go Ultra Low Fleet summit – ‘Preparing for your electric car future

 2018 Go Ultra Low Fleet summit – ‘Preparing for your electric car future’ 

Pure electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles have never been more popular in the UK, with more than 125,000 new registrations since 2011. The Government’s aim is to end sales of conventional petrol and diesel cars by 2040 – and UK businesses are playing a leading role in achieving this.  

GUL want to encourage organisations to consider electric vehicles, and discuss any issues regarding further uptake.

The Go Ultra Low Fleet Summit will be led by a keynote speech from Claire Perry MP, Minister of State for Climate Change and Industry. Also, for the first time, the Summit will feature two session streams, to help provide organisations with the right level of information.

 You are invited to select one session that will provide you with the most relevant information for your business:  

Session One: Are EVs right for my business?
This session is designed to provide an overview of running a low emission fleet for professionals with limited experience. It will include an explanatory overview of relevant industry topics, including technology types, Government support and infrastructure, using case studies and testimonials from organisations currently running low emission vehicles on their fleets.  

Session Two: Growing your low emission fleet

This interactive session will be led by case studies and testimonials from organisations that have successfully grown their low emission fleets. This will include practical advice on how to expand your electric fleet and educate your company car drivers.  

Please choose the seminar that best fits your needs, or request two places if you wish to benefit from both. Each of the seminars will also include a panel discussion and Q&A featuring influential automotive fleet professionals from across the industry.  

The summit will culminate in a drinks reception held in the SMMT showroom.  

If you already have plug-in vehicles on your fleet and are looking to grow your fleet further then you should consider joining our Go Ultra Low Companies initiative. Any public or private sector organisation that already uses electric or hybrid vehicles, or offers them to employees as company cars, is eligible for Go Ultra Low Company status, providing there’s a commitment for EVs to make up at least 5% of their vehicle fleet by 2020.
