Fleet Carbon Reduction Simulation Tool and Guide to be launched at LCV2010
Cenex's Fleet Carbon Reduction Tool is being launched as part of Cenex's drive at LCV2010 to promote the benefits of low-carbon vehicles to fleet operators, which also includes the launch of a free 50-page guide and the hosting of a fleet carbon reduction seminar that includes presentations from Coca Cola, Royal Mail and Iveco.
Cenex's Fleet Carbon Reduction Tool is said to enable accurate estimation of the carbon reduction performance of different transport fuels and technology options. A simulation model outputs whole-life cost and greenhouse gas emission predictions for each low carbon technology fleet option. The model yields quantitative information that can help identify the best low carbon technology option for fleet operators while reducing the need for trialling options in the field.
Cenex's Fleet Carbon Reduction Guidance coves three areas:
1) Evaluating low carbon vehicle options, from making the case for low carbon vehicles to trialling low carbon options
2) Technology guidance, providing information on the underlying improvements available in conventional engine technology, through hybrid and pure electric options and gaseous fuels
3) Four case studies looking at the integration of low carbon vehicles into public and private sector fleets.
'Fleet operators face significant challenges in responding to the need to lower carbon emissions and to reduce the energy use of their vehicles,' said Robert Evans, CEO of Cenex. 'We aim to help managers and operators meet these challenges through informed decisions on the best way to reduce carbon in their vehicle fleet.'
