PARTNER-NEWS: WHEELS COURIERS GO ELECTRIC! – TRIALLING AN ELECTRIC VAN IN DUBLIN

by John Whelan (ESB ecars)

Wheels Couriers, a Dublin based, nationwide courier company, is trialling a 100% electric Renault Kangoo ZE van in Dublin city as part of the ENEVATE project. The trial aims to assess the viability of light commercial electric vehicles in city centre locations. It is run in conjunction with the Department of Transport Engineering at Dublin Institute of Technology and ESB installed a charge point and smart meter at Wheels Couriers’ Dublin office. Data collected as part of the trial will be used to asses the potential fuel and maintenance cost-savings a company could experience by going electric.
