From transitioning to an electric fleet to managing vehicle supply challenges, our fleet managers and operators of today face a range of challenges that require them to resource, research, strategise and adapt at pace. We’ve put together a series of Fleet Chats with our Head of Decarbonisation, Jonny Berry to talk about the highs and lows, challenges and triumphs of fleet management in a rapidly changing environment.

James Rooney, Fleet Engineering and Innovation Manager, Centrica

In this edition of Fleet Chats, James Rooney talks about the journey the BG team made from John O’Groats to Lands End in electric vans, the biggest challenge a UK business faces when looking to electrify on a large scale and what’s next for Centrica on their mission to a full electric fleet by 2025.


Why we are committed to decarbonisation

We are running out of time

The biggest challenge UK fleets face is navigating the transition to alternative fuels. With only two renewal cycles left before 2030, our priority is to deliver solutions that enable UK businesses to decarbonise.

Clean Renewable Energy

Electric Vehicles are powered by the National Electricity grid and not fossil fuels, meaning they are powered by clean renewable energy that is sustainably sourced

Because we care

Transport is one of the biggest contributors of carbon dioxide, which directly affects the health of people and our planet. By switching to electric we can reduce CO2 emissions to healthier levels

Fleet Management

With over 30 years in Fleet Management, we understand the demands of operating a business-critical fleet. We know no one company is the same, with different priorities and requirements for each fleet, that’s why our ability to finance and manage all vehicle types makes us the ideal leasing partner for all your vehicle needs. 

Workplace and Depot Charging

We are working directly with customers and partners to assess, design and deploy their own workplace and network charging capacity from the bottom up, in direct collaboration with DNO's and solar energy partners.
