Research to explore barriers preventing widescale uptake of low-emission CVs

Element Energy has been commissioned by TfL to explore the barriers preventing operators from wider take-up of low-emission commercial vehicles.

The research will help shape TfL’s LoCITY programme, launched in January, which aims to stimulate the uptake of cleaner commercial vehicles across the capital.

As part of the research, Element Energy is seeking interviews with commercial fleet operators, infrastructure providers and vehicle manufacturers to discuss experiences of low-emission vehicle technologies to date and the factors that present limitations for further adoption of these vehicles.

Interviews will be either in person or by telephone, and will last no longer than an hour.

The research will help to:

  • Understand the constraints and barriers affecting fleet and freight operators, vehicle manufacturers and refuelling/recharging infrastructure providers;
  • Derive the siting opportunities for refuelling/recharging infrastructure, both in depot and public, en route solutions;
  • Provide clear and actionable recommendations to accelerate the uptake of low-emission commercial vehicles.
