HGV Accreditation Scheme

Project Brief

One of the key opportunities identified in the HGV barriers and opportunities report, is to increase the uptake of existing retrofit technology by the operators in the market. The report identified that an independent verification of the performance of technologies and a credible assessment of the applicability of equipment to different operational environments were the market needs. This project has developed an accreditation scheme for retrofit technology to enable equipment manufacturers or vehicle operators to conduct robust, repeatable and reliable tests to validate the impact on fuel consumption and emissions under a range of operating conditions. The scheme will also assess the operational characteristics of the technology to provide broad information to potential operators on potential applicability. The test and accreditation scheme is to be focused on proving existing technology in a back-to-back comparison under realistic HGV operational scenarios. (Download the Accreditation Scheme flyer here.)
