The Brief The Welsh Government required support to reach its target of reducing transport emissions by 43% by 2030 (including a pledge to ensure all buses and taxis in Wales are zero emission by 2028).

In particular the Welsh Government has identified 4 key TrawsCymru® and METRO routes on which to explore the potential to transition its vehicles to fully electric buses across the next 12 months.

The Approach Evenergi was commissioned to plan for and successfully deploy ultra-low emission bus technologies. The approach involved:

  • Assisting the Welsh Government in preparing tendering documents for vehicle and service procurement
  • Assisting with appraisal of bids for the supply of vehicles and associated charging infrastructure
  • Ensuring close synergies between service timetables and vehicle charging requirements
  • Advising Welsh Government on monitoring / contract compliance arrangements required to ensure vehicles and associated equipment are working correctly
  • Working with operators to ensure they have the correct operational and maintenance systems in place to fully optimise the efficiency of the low emission vehicles
The Result Evenergi continues to work closely with the Welsh Government and Transport for Wales today on a range of different projects to help them reach their goal of becoming zero emission by 2028.
