Now with four fully electric vehicles and one hybrid, the Security Services team are contributing to the University’s reduction in fleet admissions. Around fifty per cent of University’s entire fleet are now electric.
Our Climate Plan’s central pillar of Net Zero emissions by 2030 highlights the importance of tackling this reduction.
Mark Bownass, Head of Security Services, says that the vehicles have other benefits too.
“The team uses charging points on campus so never have to leave the site to buy fuel, meaning they are available 24/7.”
“The servicing costs are lower and no oil is needed. Some of the team are in the cars for long periods of time – such as those patrolling overnight – and they report that the cars are comfortable, very well-fitted and technically agile.”
