This follows the announcement that UK Power Networks is trialling eight electric Renault Kangoo vans in its operational fleet, to be powered by on-site solar generation at six locations. UK Power Networks Services, which operates and maintains the electricity networks at London’s airports, and its staff will use the EVs to carry out their work, which should help to improve air quality and reduce carbon emissions caused by ground transport in and around the airports.
