  • The Renewable Fuels Guide

    LowCVP's new guide gives fleet operators an overview of the range of low carbon, sustainable fuels now available in the UK, with a focus on high blend biofuels for use in commercial vehicles. It demonstrates the business and environmental case for adopting high blend biofuels, featuring a series of fleet operator case studies.


  • Proposals for a Low Carbon Fuel Assurance Scheme

    The Low Carbon Fuel Tracking Scheme (LCFTS) aims to provide assurance and traceability of the carbon and sustainability performance of renewable fuels being sold to fleet operators in the UK. It complements DfT's Renewable Fuel Transport Obligation and facilitates evidence of carbon and sustainability for low carbon fuels beyond the point of fuel duty,


  • WTT Greenhouse Gas Emission Factors: Review and Recommendations

    A review of well-to-tank GHG emission values and pathways for natural gas, biofuels and hydrogen


  • Energising Our Electric Vehicle Transition

    The final report of the EV Energy Taskforce. Published January 2020. This report focuses on steps to remove actual or potential barriers and reinforce actual or potential enablers. It provides a focus on key issues and states when important questions have to be resolved. The proposals are not just for Government. Success will need collaboration and compromise from all stakeholders, both in the energy and the automotive sectors. We hope that the report will catalyse action: agree
