This workshop is now over-subscribed. We request that only one representative per organisation attend. However there is a waiting list open. Should any places become available they will go on a first come first serve basis.

Please note: the workshop is primarily targeted at representatives of local authorities.

Presentations and other relevant documents will be made available to all who are unable to attend after the event.



The Low Carbon Vehicle Partnership is holding a 'Low Emission Taxi Workshop' to outline the range of low emission taxi technologies and fuels as well as to provide guidance on the provision of electric vehicle charging infrastructure. The event - which is free to delegates - is primarily targeted at local authority representatives and those otherwise involved in ensuring that taxi and private hire fleets become cleaner and greener.

An overview of national and local policies and measures will be presented at the Workshop. Case studies will be presented by local authorities that are already deploying low and ultra-low emission taxis and minicabs.

The Workshop is a follow-up to the October publication of 'The Low Emission Taxi Guide' produced by the LowCVP in collaboration with Energy Saving Trust. (More details here.)
