E4tech supported EVET and the Commercial EV Fleet Working Group to develop the newly-launched Commercial EV Fleet Charging Requirements report. The following are some of the key findings:
Both private and public charging solutions are required to support the wide range of all commercial vehicle use cases The greatest barriers to commercial EV fleet charging are where it is out of control of the vehicle operators: on-street, en-route and at destinations Collaboration and co-ordination de-risk investment by fleets and charge point operators, encouraging growth of electrification of transport for all The findings will become recommendations to Government and industry to accelerate the electrification of commercial vehicle fleets.
Eight industry-led projects have been shortlisted to receive a share of £15 million funding available under the Green Fuels, Green Skies (GFGS) competition for the development of sustainable aviation fuels (SAF) production plants in the UK. This competition was launched by the UK Department for Transport (DfT) in conjunction with delivery partners E4tech and Ricardo Energy & Environment as part of a drive to develop a SAF industry in the UK. Shortlisted proposals include projects aiming to produce jet fuel from household and commercial black bag rubbish, waste wood, sewage sludge, steel mill waste gases or carbon dioxide captured from the atmosphere.
The Green Fuels, Green Skies competition, was launched today by the Department for Transport (DfT) and delivery partners E4tech and Ricardo Energy & Environment. The competition will provide up to £15 million in grant funding to UK Sustainable Aviation Fuels (SAF) projects during the 2021/22 financial year, as part of a drive to develop a SAF industry in the UK. It will support the early-stage development of UK SAF plants, referred to as the “Front End Engineering Design (FEED)”, “Pre-FEED” and “Feasibility Study” stages of a project’s development life cycle.
