Cenex has launched the Gas Vehicle Hub to support the growth of gas vehicles in the UK, providing details of the location of refuelling infrastructure.
The new Refuelling Stations Request Form has been designed to assist current and potential gas fleet operators to encourage the construction of convenient refuelling stations by collating preferred sites and sharing them with suppliers.
Through an easy-to-access online process, fleet operators who are considering switching to gas vehicles, or operators who are already using it but would benefit from more refuelling stations, can register their interest with the aim of building confidence in a demand for stations in specific areas.
Operators need simply input their preferred station location, type of fuel, and type and size of fleet, and Cenex will collate and share the details with station operators around the country.
“By providing a central hub for current or potential gas fleet operators to register their interest for refuelling stations, The Gas Vehicle Hub Refuelling Stations Request Form will help station suppliers gauge demand, and build stations where they’re needed,” said Steve Carrol, technical specialist at Cenex.
“By making the form accessible to anyone online, the collated voices of the many will boost the chances of success,” he added.
The recent Low Carbon Truck Trial, co-funded by Innovate UK and the Office for Low Emission Vehicles (OLEV) identified the lack of refuelling infrastructure as a major barrier to gas vehicle uptake, Carrol explained.
“This process has been developed to directly help fleet operators use and refuel gas vehicles as easily as possible,” Carrol concluded.
