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.More
