Newly appointed head of transport at Cenex to help fleets drive down CO2
Cenex – the UK’s first Centre of Excellence for low carbon technologies – has appointed Steve Carroll to lead its work on helping large fleet owners implement high-impact carbon reduction strategies.
As head of transport at Cenex, Carroll will be responsible for carrying out large-scale vehicle trials; developing new relationships with technology innovators, local governments and end users; and helping fleet owners and local authorities realise the value of investing in low carbon vehicle technology.
A specialist in fleet management and renewable energies, Carroll comes from a background in automotive engineering and renewable energies.
During his seven years at Cenex, he has played a critical role in some of the organisation’s largest vehicle demonstration and deployment projects. As study lead for the UK Department of Transport’s Low Carbon Truck Trial, he monitored and analysed the use of multiple alternative fuels across 12 consortia of trucks. As lead analyst for the Technology Strategy Board’s successful Ultra Low Carbon Vehicle Demonstrator Programme, Carroll used his analysis and reporting to make a strong case for the viability of electric vehicles for everyday use by UK consumers and businesses.
Carroll said: “I couldn’t be more honoured to take on this new role at a time when Cenex is supporting large-scale low carbon vehicle trials in the UK and internationally. I am looking forward to helping governments and industry harness the latest technical innovations and transition to sustainable, low carbon transportation solutions.”
