The UK government is putting in place measures to tackle air pollution from vehicles and the resultant health problems. Birmingham is one of the first 6 cities that will be mandated to introduce a Clean Air Zone (CAZ). Although the details of the CAZ are still to be finalised, it is clear that improving air quality within cities is a public health issue and requires vehicle users to transition to cleaner fuels and towards ultra-low emission vehicles. Find out how your business fleet can respond to the need for compliance and get your transport plans in place early to gain an advantage.
As part of this national agenda, Tyseley Energy Park (TEP) are creating opportunities for companies to access a new site focused on commercial refuelling from using bio-diesel and compressed natural gas to Electric and Hydrogen fuels.
The low/zero emission re-fuelling is a development collaboration between Webster & Horsfall who own the site, and Birmingham City Council as part of the clean air agenda. A new access road is being developed, which is part funded through the Greater Birmingham and Solihull Local Enterprise Partnership.
TEP believes that this is an exciting time for the UK automotive sector and by offering a full range of fuels this will give fleet operators the ability to consider all of the options available.
This event is an opportunity to:
- find out more about the Clean Air Zone and what it could mean for your business fleet
- find out about Tyseley Energy Park low/zero emission fuels and the types of vehicles available
- access support for fleet transition to cleaner fuels
Be proactive – find out how your business can respond using the benefits of new vehicle and fuel technologies!
