£5 million of government funding has been announced for public sector organisations to introduce Ultra Low Emission Vehicles, (ULEVs) into their fleets.

This second phase of funding (the first was announced in August 2014) is open to the wider public sector. Last week, up to 35 organisations were invited to bid. These included the police, fire services and the NHS.

Successful bidders will be offered a fully funded fleet review to identify how to introduce greener vehicles. The funding is intended to help introduce ULEVs into central government fleets.

The first phase will result in around 150 vehicles entering government department fleets from next month. This new, second phase is expected to result in over 200 plug-in and hybrid vehicles introduced to other public sector organisations.

Transport Minister Baroness Kramer said: “We want the public sector to lead by example. This £5 million investment will see a significant increase in the number of plug-in vehicles used by public bodies such as local authorities, police forces and the NHS and help both the environment and the economy. I look forward to seeing the results.”

ULEVs are seen as a major growth area within the UK economy, supported by a quadrupling of ULEV sales during 2014.
