FLEET & BUSINESS SERVICES

At Nottingham City Council, our mission statement is to put citizens at the heart of all decisions.

Climate change and poor air quality are significant, international issues. In the Nottingham City Council (NCC) administrative area, poor air quality contributes to more fatalities than road traffic accidents and alcohol consumption combined; with the estimated social impact of poor air quality costing £500m a year across Nottinghamshire. To help combat these issues, NCC have committed to operating a zero-tailpipe emission fleet by 2028.

So far, we have managed to replace 196 (40%) of our diesel vehicles with ultra-low emission alternatives. This makes NCC the leading local authority in the UK for fleet electrification, as well as the first local authority to operate electric compact sweepers, electric minibuses, electric cage tippers and original equipment manufactured (OEM) electric refuse collection vehicles (eRCVs).

Whilst we are proud of the progress we have made, we also recognise the importance of helping others to achieve their electrification ambitions too. That is why we have developed a range of schemes to support businesses, charities and public authorities looking to transition to cleaner forms of transport.

CALLING ALL FLEET MANAGERS!

Nottingham City Council have proven that fleet electrification is possible and we are keen to help fleet owners who are thinking of switching to EVs. Using our knowledge, expertise and experience, we can support you on your fleet electrification journey. We can offer fleet reviews, charging infrastructure design and installation and, for public services, our brand new  ULEV Procurement Framework makes it even easier to make the switch!

ULEV & HYBRID VEHICLE FRAMEWORK

CALLING ALL FLEET MANAGERS!

NCC have proven that fleet electrification is possible and we are keen to help fleet owners who are thinking of switching to EVs. Using our knowledge, expertise and experience, we can support you on your fleet electrification journey. We can offer fleet reviews, charging infrastructure design and installation and, for public sector organisations, our brand new  ULEV Procurement Framework makes it even easier to make the switch!

The framework was created to facilitate the wider take up of EVs by public sector authorities in the UK. It covers the purchase of ultra-low emission and battery electric cars, vans, sweepers, minibuses and Hackney Carriage taxis. It provides access to an OJEU compliant process, through which purchasing authorities can be linked to suppliers who have been quality assessed by our industry-leading ULEV experts and evaluated for value for money.

All of the specifications on the framework have been created by our ULEV experts and the vehicles have been proven to work in a local authority setting, offering security to purchasing authorities that the vehicles can operate effectively in a real world environment. Collective purchase through the framework also results in lower prices and lead times.

ELECTRIC VAN EXPERIENCE PROJECT

With the Government ban on the sale of new petrol and diesel vehicles brought forward to 2030, NCC want to support businesses to make the switch to electric vehicles. Not only are they more environmentally friendly, but they are cheaper to run and maintain too. As such, we have launched the Electric Van Experience (EVE) project to offer eligible businesses, charities and public sector organisations the chance to try an electric van. As part of this, participants will receive a charge point at their business premises free of charge. This will give participants the chance to experience first hand the benefits of greener vehicles, and provide operational confidence to make a permanent switch.

More information on the EVE project can be accessed  here.

WORKPLACE TRAVEL SCHEME GRANT

The Workplace Travel Service (WTS) launched in 2018 with Go Ultra Low Cities funding. The aim of the WTS is to support and encourage businesses and organisations to make sustainable travel choices by providing financial support and advice on a range of transport related measures. Part of this service includes the WTS Grant which can provide eligible businesses with a grant of up to £25,000. This grant is flexible and can be spent on almost anything which supports sustainable forms of transport. Some of the measures covered by the grant include electric vehicle charge points, cycle parking, changing facilities, pool bikes and car parking management.
