The Energy Saving Trust (EST) has produced a new video to highlight to fleets the benefits of adopting electric vehicles.
The video follows on from the success of the Plugged-in Fleets Initiative (PIFI) run by the EST and also covers the latest Plugged-in Fleets Initiative 100 scheme.
The original Plugged-in Fleets Initiative (PIFI), which was funded by Transport for London (TfL) and the Department for Transport (DfT), was run last year to demonstrate how public and private sector organisations in the UK could significantly reduce fuel costs and carbon emissions by integrating pure electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles into their fleets.
A total of 61% of the organisations that the EST worked with last year on PIFI have stated they have or intend to acquire plug-in vehicles, with the majority of organisations realising the benefits if they’re prepared to upgrade their fleets. One of the main benefits is the potential to reduce fleet fuel costs by up to 75%, helping to protect businesses from the impact of rising fuel costs.
The video contains examples of PIFI success stories from City of York Council, Fruit 4 London and Tristar Worldwide Chauffeurs that are all saving money and carbon with plug-in vans and cars. Plus Energy Saving Trust experts Pete Lunt and Caroline Watson talk about our on-going work with electric vehicles in the UK.
