Deadline approaches for Clean Bus Technology Fund 2015
The Department for Transport has launched a £5 million fund to help local authorities to finance the retrofitting of emissions cutting technologies for buses. Individual grants of up to £500,000 are available to local authorities to support the upgrade of buses with technology to reduce nitrous oxide emissions in areas of poor air quality. The deadline to apply for funding is 30 October.
The Vantage Power B320 hybrid retrofit solution for double-decker buses not only delivers the required NOx emission reduction to be eligible for CBTF funding, but gives numerous other benefits including a reduction in fuel consumption of up to 40% as well as a new warranty on the hybrid system.
