EST looks to fill last spaces on Plugged-in-Fleets Initiative

As part of the Plugged-in Fleets Initiative (PIFI), which is funded by the Department for Transport and Transport for London, the Energy Saving Trust (EST) is undertaking a free bespoke analysis on 100 fleets to help them understand where ultra-low emission vehicles could work for them. 

More than 90 fleets have so far taken part in the initiatives, but there is still time for further fleets to apply – go to or email [email protected]

Interested fleets should complete an application form and provide data about their fleet including the types of cars and vans operated, usage and mileage patterns. 

Based on information provided and interviews with an organisation’s fleet decision-maker, the EST team will provide a detailed report and analysis using whole life vehicle costs with recommendations of how plug-in vehicles could work in a business. 

Although current PIFI funding expires on 5th April, the Government is currently exploring options for a further phase in 2014/15. 

Speaking at this week's EV seminar held by ACFO, EST consultant Karl Anders said: ‘Any fleets interested in being involved should get in touch as soon as possible.’
