ENERGY SAVING TRUST USED ULEV TRAININGBack

The Energy Saving Trust is a Social Enterprise with a Charitable Foundation established by the UK Government in 1992, which operates across 200 staff across offices in Scotland, England, Wales and Northern Ireland. Their main goal is to reduce harmful emissions by promoting sustainable, efficient use of energy and transport.

The NFDA has been working closely with Energy Saving Trust which has recently run a series of training events about Ultra Low Emission Vehicles (ULEVs) aimed at raising awareness of ULEVs and bust myths, particularly surrounding range and charging speed.

Training sessions run by Energy Saving Trust include insights into vehicle technology, charging process and infrastructure, analysis of current landscapes and future developments for the ULEV market, an electric vehicle (EV) and plug-in hybrid electric vehicle (PHEV) checklists and, finally, a quiz about ULEV myths.

The EV segment presents a number of challenges, but also several opportunities. Particularly, as Energy Saving Trust highlights, EVs represent an emerging market, which will provide growth and increased margins. Expert advice about an area which is still surrounded by a certain degree of uncertainty can help dealers achieve higher levels of customer retention.

Energy Saving Trust have already held 14 events which have seen a total of nearly 150 participants. Attendees have said that following the events, they have seen a significant increase in sales of EVs.

An exhaustive understanding of ULEVs is crucial to lead consumers throughout their buying journey. Going forward, it continues to be crucial to sustain the growth of this segment which has been rising continuously over the past years.
