Renewable energy is being expensively wasted. Here’s how battery storage can fix that.

In 2020 and 2021 curtailment was especially high, costing £806 million and wasting enough renewable electricity to power 800 000 homes.

As the coach industry looks to electrify, what unique challenges is it facing – and what are the solutions?

We answer three key strategic questions for coach operators, based on our conversations to date.

Energy price volatility and how to manage it for electric fleets: Simon, our PPA Senior Pricing Manager shares his insights

With record energy prices occupying news headlines we wanted to hear what this means for our customers and whether anyone can ever relax about energy prices.

Electric or Hydrogen: What’s the best option for fleet operators? 

For fleet operators looking to eliminate their emissions and escape skyrocketing diesel prices, the technicalities of low-carbon technologies can be confusing. Learn more...

Delivering electric depots: we talk to Temitayo, Project Manager in the EV Delivery Team

We talk to Temitayo Siwoniku, EV Construction Project Manager in the Delivery Team.

£0.5m per 100 buses per year: the impact of e-bus driver performance on operational costs

By taking driver efficiency data from one e-bus depot over a 14-month period, we’ve worked out that the difference between an efficient and less efficient driver could be £5k in energy costs per year

Leading the charge: electric vehicle batteries and battery performance for fleet operators

This guide is written to help fleet operators understand two of the key considerations when switching to battery electric vehicles: the batteries themselves, and how to manage their performance.

Is Electric Transport as a Service (ETaaS) the future for fleet electrification?

The simplest approach to overcoming the barriers to fleet electrification could be for operators to transition away from ownership entirely and towards an Electric Transport as a Service model.

Why we need a second-life for EV batteries: an interview with Rob Long, Senior Business Development Associate

Rob runs us through the benefits; both environmental and financial, of using batteries in a second life and creating a circular economy.

Models for fleet electrification

Fleet decarbonisation faces many barriers, including high capital costs. Rapidly, international stakeholders are developing policies and business models to overcome this barrier - we take a look.

Rebecca, Operations Associate on supporting the electrification of bus depots

From late night issue diagnosis to smart charging strategies and data analysis, the Operations team provide extended support to fleet operators so they can run routes & maximise use of our services.

How to overcome the barriers of switching vehicle fleets to electric

For some it may seem like a no-brainer, but for many fleet operators the decision to switch to electric is charged with uncertainty. What are the barriers and how can they be overcome?

A guide to UK funding for switching bus fleets to electric

2021 was a bumper year for funding announcements and awards for decarbonising bus fleets. But what if you missed out?

What is a circular economy for batteries?

To electrify our energy systems, it will be necessary to develop a sustainable life cycle for batteries so that critical minerals can be used as efficiently as possible.

Why is transport a key part of the energy transition?

Decarbonising transport shouldn’t mean just ramping up electric car production and installing charge points. It's an opportunity to redesign the transport system, and how we fuel it.

How do we get out of our toxic air crisis?

Clean power. Clean transport. Clean air. 

How can finance support the energy transition?

Finance is driving the energy transition – but it needs to flow to the organisations with the solutions.

Why is battery storage key to reaching net zero?

Renewable energy is zero-carbon – but it is also intermittent, meaning it is only generated when the wind blows and the sun shines. This is where batteries come in.
