Around 20% of domestic transport emissions in the UK come from Heavy Duty Vehicles (HDV). To meet national net-zero targets, the Scottish and UK governments are planning a shift to zero emission HDV fleets across sectors. In addition, more low emissions zones and clean air zones are expected across Scotland and England. In response, zero emission alternatives are becoming available from a range of HDV manufacturers.

These early stages of zero emission HDV transition present a window of opportunity for HDV fleet managers and operators to share knowledge and develop their skills. This will support the procurement and operation, and accelerate the adoption, of zero emission HDVs as part of a more sustainable and efficient national fleet.

To support this transition, Energy Saving Trust is hosting a series of free online training sessions, funded by Transport Scotland, to equip you with essential knowledge on zero emission HDVs. These interactive workshops will feature advice and information, guided discussions and case studies, which aim to:

  • Raise awareness of the zero emission HDV sector and its direction.
  • Improve knowledge about the types of zero emission HDV available and their use cases to support procurement.
  • Upskill fleet managers and operators to support the operation of zero emission HDV fleets.

This will be a series of sessions covering:
