The FOR:EV team joined key industry leaders and public sector officials at the GREENFLEET Scotland event on Tuesday 15 August 2023, at the Arnold Clark Innovation Centre in Glasgow.

Supported by Transport Scotland, GREENFLEET Scotland has dedicated itself to shaping Scotland’s clean fleet strategy since its launch in 2009.

Our CEO Steve Dunlop, executive director Lindsay Wallace, business development manager Anthony Boyd, public partnerships manager Jon Givacs and executive assistant Lorna Ramsay, joined over 100 fleet and transport professionals, as well as depot, facilities and sustainability managers at the event, to discuss the next steps in Scotland’s EV strategy and hear from expert speakers.

Bringing together EV fleet experts from all over the country, the event was designed to inspire and encourage conversations about shifting from outdated ICE vehicles to more innovative and cleaner technology.

Featuring talks from Transport Scotland, ChargePlace Scotland, key energy specialists and fleet experts, the event covered a diverse range of topics including strategy, policy and regional issues impacting both public and private sectors.

Guests were also invited to take part in group sessions which included test drives and round table discussions on various strategies towards charging, infrastructure, and cost.

The FOR:EV team were in attendance to listen to the needs of fleet operators and offer our unique ‘Charging as a Service’ model, showing the benefits of using FOR:EV’s charging points to support a fleet’s transition to Net Zero.

Not only were the team able to talk to delegates about FOR:EV’s role in the EV revolution, the event was also an informative learning experience for them. Our team returned having gained key insights into the upcoming challenges faced by fleet operators.

Speaking on how the event was an important chance to network with EV industry professionals, Business Development Manager Anthony Boyd said:

“At this critical time when the fleet and business communities are discussing how they can work towards achieving Scotland’s Net Zero goals, GREENFLEET Scotland was a great opportunity for FOR:EV to be a key part of the conversation.

“The day was the perfect chance to position ourselves at the forefront of people’s minds as the ideal solution for their EV charging needs.”
