The completion of Islington’s £5.7 million charging infrastructure project, which has been part-funded by the Mayor of London, has seen the completion of infrastructure works at the Waste and Recycling Centre. The Council says it will now be able to complete the electrification of its entire fleet.

The fleet already numbers 80 fully electric vehicles and includes cage tippers and electric minibuses. In 2020, the London borough received its first fully electric Zoe cars. The Council plans to only use electric vehicles by 2030. The London borough also intends to reduce the overall size of the fleet but has not gone into more detail about how this will be achieved.

London’s Deputy Mayor for Environment and Energy, Shirley Rodrigues, said: “This project demonstrates that, with commitment and vision, it’s possible to convert even larger and more specialist vehicles to electric.”
