Electric Fleets

We help operators to electrify their fleets and minimise the lifetime costs of their electric vehicles and charging infrastructure.

We minimise the lifetime costs of electrification

We are market leaders in the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Each operator we have worked with has their own starting point and fleet requirements. We work closely with our customers to understand their situation and how we can help.

We focus on minimising electric fleet lifetime costs. We want to make the environmentally sustainable financially sustainable.

Power procurement

Many of our customers start with significant grid constraints – they do not have access to the power they need to run their services.


We work with them to understand their requirements and to see if, using our charging software or on site battery storage, we can minimise the ‘peak power’ required. If this isn’t enough, we secure a bigger connection for the best price.

Designing and delivering flexible charging infrastructure

We design charging infrastructure to fit the needs of each depot and work with a wide range of charging manufacturers. We understand that most operators will take a phased approach to electrification and so we like to future-proof our infrastructure designs, avoiding surprises in future phases.

Minimising upfront costs

The upfront capital required to purchase charging infrastructure and electric vehicles is significant, as are the costs of replacement batteries – so we offer finance. We can provide competitive financing for charging infrastructure and for buses, coaches, minibuses and trucks over a range of contract lengths.


When we replace a battery in a Zenobē vehicle, we go on to refurbish and reuse it in second-life commercial applications. Value from these projects is passed back to the first customer, making our day one price more competitive.

Minimising operational costs

In a volatile energy market, we help our customers keep the operational costs of their fleet down with bespoke power purchase agreements (PPAs) and award-winning smart-charging software that minimises energy costs.


Then, a combination of operator training and desktop software analysis enables us to increase overall operational efficiency.

Electric transport as a service (ETaaS)

Now fleet operators can also enjoy the benefits of the ‘as a service’ model.


With ETaaS we’re able to finance and manage complete solutions including new vehicles, battery replacement, charging and grid infrastructure, depot-based second-life battery systems, smart charging software, spare parts, and full operational support. All for a monthly fee.

I want to electrify my fleet - where do I start?

Start by reading our guide to electric vehicle batteries and how to manage their performance. A must for fleet operators wanting to understand two of the key considerations when switching to battery electric vehicles.

Case Studies / Australia

Australia's largest electrified bus depot

Zenobē worked with Transgrid to develop a ‘next generation’ electric bus depot in the Sydney (Australia) suburb of Leichhardt that integrates electric vehicles, chargers, solar generation and batteries with the electricity grid. At 40 buses it is the biggest electric fleet in Australia
