Our entire fleet for our client Westminster City Council is now fully electric! 

In another step that brings us closer to achieving our goal of being a net zero company, we are delighted to be steadily increasing the number of electric vehicles in our fleet.

Glynn Newby, Operations Director at Bouygues Energies & Services said,

“I am delighted that the Bouygues E&S team have pushed the transition of their fleet through so deftly. This is a really positive step in supporting Westminster City Council in their key Greener City Action Plan to help reduce noise, improve air quality and increase sustainable transport in Westminster."

At Bouygues Energies & Services, we choose electric vehicles because, as well as having a very low carbon footprint, they do not emit any other pollutants and this is particularly important when we are working in areas of poor air quality. 

In addition, we now have the capability to install any vehicle charging requirements ourselves, in-house, from fast to ultra-rapid. This is efficient and cost effective both for our fleet and our clients’ vehicles. 

Enabling more efficient driving
All our vehicles have the latest in-vehicle telemetry. Telemetry gives us information about a vehicle or driver's performance by collecting data from sensors within the vehicle. This helps us to direct the best-placed vehicles to each job and to avoid traffic jams. We can also monitor driver performance; harsh braking, rapid acceleration and fuel efficiency, so that we can help all drivers to be more efficient.
We support this further with training, teaching our drivers not only how to drive more efficiently but also more safely, which is vital when crews are on the road so much. In addition the telemetry helps identify which drivers might need improvement in specific areas.
Additional benefits include reduced levels of stress, because electric vehicles are easier to drive in slow moving traffic, and reduced maintenance costs as vehicles that are well-driven have reduced wear and tear.

Reducing environmental and social impacts
Our traditional diesel fleet, like others, was responsible for large levels of CO2 emissions and noxious tailpipe emissions. A switch to electric vehicles addresses both of these issues and can also help to reduce levels of noise nuisance if our crews are working in residential streets. Improved logistics also reduce our overall mileage, again helping reduce Carbon emissions. 
Real-time vehicle telemetry allows us to respond more quickly to emergencies and call-outs, making sure the right vehicle attends the job. This means more time working and less time on the road, as well as reducing fuel costs and emissions.
Improved vehicle efficiency also reduces fuel usage and electric vehicles avoid most congestion and parking charges. Best of all, our crews are less tired and stressed.
Defensive driving techniques can help our staff to stay safe and to drive more efficiently. There are also indications that levels of tiredness and stress are also reduced.
