AFP webinar and guide to help fleets switch to EVs
A new webinar guiding fleets on introducing electric vehicles and backed by a best practice policy guide is being run by the Association of Fleet Professionals (AFP).
Taking place at 9:30am on 16 December and open to AFP members, the webinar is focused on the subject of ‘Introducing Electric Vehicles – Upgrading Your Policy and Implementing Your EV Roadmap’.
The webinar is also being used to launch the new AFP Best Practice Fleet Policy Guide for EVs, which is available to all of the organisation’s members through its website.
AFP chair Paul Hollick said: “While the coronavirus crisis might have affected the availability of new EVs and slowed fleet adoption as a result, there is no question that fleet enthusiasm appears to be unaffected.
“The webinar will look at the practicalities of introducing EVs to your business, from vehicle choice to range management and from charging availability to drawing up choice lists.
The event will be hosted by AFP director Julie Summerell and include presentations from Simon King, director of sustainability, social value and fleet at Mitie and Lorna McAtear, fleet manager at National Grid.
Hollick continued: “Our speakers are at different stages in their EV journey, with Simon pretty far advanced down the road and Lorna just starting out, so it’ll be interesting to hear about their contrasting experiences and expectations.”
This is the third AFP webinar to be held since the organisation was formed in March from the merging of the Association of Car Fleet Operators (ACFO) and the Institute of Car Fleet Management (ICFM). A full calendar of 2021 events is due to be announced very soon.
