Cenex to run low carbon vehicle masterclasses for fleet managers

The move follows the success of Cenex’s first “pilot” course, which was part funded by the European Union’s Climate Knowledge Innovation Community and was a residential programme for fleet managers and professionals from across the EU.

Topics covered included UK and EU Policy, vehicle technology as well as Charging and Fuelling Infrastructure. However, the session explaining the practicalities of using low carbon vehicles and the transport implications of the Energy Saving Opportunity Scheme Legislation were found to be the most useful by the attendees.

A highlight of the course included the ride & drive experience at Donington Park where delegates were given the opportunity to ride and drive the latest Tesla, Nissan, Toyota and Mitsubishi electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles.

‘After speaking to many of our attendees, the general feel was that the course was able to provide a strong foundation about the low carbon vehicle industry and also provided an opportunity to fill in knowledge gaps,’ said Keith Budden, head of business development at Cenex.

‘Low carbon mobility is a complex and ever-changing field and it’s important to run courses such as this one to impart vital knowledge to those in the industry. We are currently working on ideas to deliver one-day courses across the UK and are also looking for hosts and sponsors.’
