GreenFleet Awards for Industry Innovation 2018 Winner!

This award is presented to the organisation that has introduced new technology, practice or method that reduces fuel consumption and emissions and demonstrates innovation in its design and/or implementation.

As part of an initiative to drive down air pollution in London’s Square Mile, Electra supplied the technology for The City of London’s trial of the UK’s first fully-electric waste collection truck. The 26-tonne truck runs on lithium-ion batteries. Designed for urban environments with short routes, it can complete a full 10-hour shift. Every aspect of its operation relies on electric motors, with no combustion engine on board.
