ACFO has announced that its third webinar of the year will focus on fleet fuels of the future as powertrain selection is one of the “biggest issues”.
A trio of experts will be in attendance to inform fleet managers on diesel, petrol, hybrid, hybrid electric and 100% electric, on June 22.
The webinar will be hosted by ACFO digital chairman Julie Summerell and digital secretary James Pestell.
Joining them will be the expert panel, consisting of:
- Doug Hyett, national fleet sales manager, Volkswagen UK, who will focus on the diesel debate, current and future diesel challenges and provide a manufacturer’s view on future fleet fuels.
- Stewart Lightbody, head of fleet services, Anglian Water Services, and an ACFO member, who will provide a fleet operator’s perspective on the ensuing debate and will touch on the challenges currently being faced in managing a diesel policy, how drivers’ concerns are being managed and what changes should be made to future-proof fuel policies.
- James O’Neill, UK sales director, at international electric solutions provider Ensto, who will analyse the top five plug-in vehicle concerns facing fleet managers, the transition to a potential electric vehicle future and what is on the horizon.
Summerell (pictured) said the webinar would: “Tackle what fleet managers need to know in terms of both the key areas they should be focusing on and the questions they should be asking of their suppliers as they realign their fleet strategies to take account of a changing powertrain environment.
“The ‘cafe-style’ webinars via presentations and an informal question and answer sessions have proved extremely popular with ACFO members. Judging from the feedback received.
“The webinars are designed to confront head-on, with assistance from experts, the ‘big’ challenges that fleet managers are facing and future fuels is among the agenda-topping issues.
"The webinar will provide fleet operators with information and insight to aid decision-making.”
