Uniti Expo entrance

Manufacturers support decision to reschedule Uniti Expo

The Committee of the European Manufacturers of Petroleum Measuring and Distributing equipment (CECOD) has made an official statement in support of the postponement of UNITI Expo 2020, which has been rescheduled due to the coronavirus crisis.

Showing you the way

If you're looking for products and services to help increase shopper satisfaction and boost your footfall then the National Convenience Show (NCS) is the place to visit.

Powering into future mobility

Fuel cell electric vehicles will be the mainstay of vehicles going forward, according to Jon Hunt, manager of alternative fuels at Toyota. During an enthralling presentation at Forecourt Trader's inaugural Summit at The Belfry Hotel in Sutton Coldfield last month, he told delegates that Toyota believes "pure electrification is not the dominant route we should be taking, despite what your hear"

Making a power point

Top 50 Indie Patrick Sewell, managing director of Yorkshire-based Sewell on the go, echoed the feelings of many retailers when he expressed confusion about implementing a future fuels plan at last month's ACS Forecourt Conference in Leicester.

Exhibiting great success

Visitors and exhibitors alike were full of praise for this year's Forecourt Show, which took place last month at the Birmingham NEC.

The main attraction

With the motor vehicle industry in transition, particularly with the fast-pace development of electric vehicle technology, the Fuelling the Future: On the Road to Zero session at The Forecourt Show should be attended by all forecourt retailer visitors to the event.

Displays that pay

If you're looking to make changes to your forecourt perhaps by investing in new equipment or are considering a move to a different fuel brand, then a trip to The Forecourt Show 2019 is a must.

Seismic change ahead

The automotive sector is facing a global seismic change, warned Philippa Oldham, head of National Network Programmes, Advanced Propulsion Centre (APC), at last month's Westminster Energy, Environment & Transport Forum on the next steps for low emissions vehicles. Against the backdrop of the International Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) warning that we've got just 12 years to get serious about limiting the global temperature rise of 1.5C; and the 'Road to Zero' setting the expectation that at least 50% ideally 70% of UK car sales being zero emission capable by 2030, she said the shift from our traditional internal combustion engines needs to be addressed. The APC was formed in 2013 through a partnership between industry and government, with a target to match-fund £1bn over the course of 10 years to the UK in low-carbon propulsion R&D technology. Its achievement is measured in C02 targets. It's estimated that 26% of UK greenhouse gas emissions come from transport.
