The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership (LowCVP), launched in 2018 as part of the Government’s Road to Zero strategy, offers a set of Ultra Low Emission Truck (ULET) standards which could play a key role in encouraging industry-focused technology development for next-generation, highly fuel efficient, clean, green and sustainable heavy goods vehicles.
LowCVP has been tasked with developing detailed ULET proposals and, to do so, is seeking contributions from HGV operators via an online survey. The questions seek your views on what proportion of a truck’s work is typically carried out on city, urban, regional or motorway routes, and how those proportions vary by the size and weight of the vehicle; as well as details on typical daily and weekly mileages and fuel consumption. All responses will be held in strict confidence and only used by combining the various individual responses for each vehicle category and for overall UK HGV fleet estimates.
More info on the survey can be found by visiting https://www.lowcvp.org.uk/projects/commercial-vehicle-working-group/hgv-mileage-survey.htm or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org stating ‘HGV survey’ in the subject line.
Alternatively, you can go directly to the survey itself via this link https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/LowCVP_HGV19. Responses are requested by no later than 15th January 2020.
