Dundee united in the battle to banish chronic air quality

Dundee City Council  corporate fleet operations manager Fraser Crichton

Once consumed by issues of range anxiety and cost, today the biggest quandary for fleets considering the introduction of electric vehicles (EVs) centres on charging infrastructure – and, specifically, workplace charging.

On paper, it seems simple enough: get a supplier to install a few points at the office and away you go. 

However, the complexities of local grid capacity, charge point power outputs, number and type of charge points required and negotiating with office landlords, exacerbated by worries about the availability of public charging to provide supplementary support, mean many companies are fearful of even starting the process.

One recommended course of action is to turn to those that have already bought the t-shirt. And there is, arguably, no better place to start than at Dundee City Council.
