Electrify America: VW’s 2bn dollar settlement on dieselgate will be managed by a dedicated EV infrastructure subsidiary owned by Volkswagen Group of America. It is to manage the installation of more than 300 EV charging stations in 15 metropolitan regions and another 200 to form a high-speed, cross-country network. Furthermore, VW will set up the ‘Green City’ initiative in California that will see electric car sharing or a ZEV shuttle or transit programme. Investments of 500m dollars are due every 30 months and have to be approved by EPA and CARB.

100 FCV are on the road and got there through the Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) project. They deployed 60 Renault Kangoo ZE-H2 in France and England as well as another 40 Mercedes B-series F-Cell in Germany. The fuel cell cars are the first 100 of 1,230 to come via H2ME.

E-bus trial a success: For BYD, an electric bus trial at Sydney Airport bears fruit as the ground transport provider Carbridge now ordered another 40 shuttles. The BYD Electric Blu bus can carry 70 passengers, comes with luggage storage racks and ranges 248 miles on a single charge.

eNV200 on security duty: North East Lincolnshire Council has added eleven Nissan eNV200 to its security and neighbourhood operations fleet. They replaced its diesel-powered vehicles as the council plans to become the UK energy capital by 2032.

Leaf on duty, too: eVolt has installed three rapid chargers for a Scottish taxi business to charge its five Nissan Leaf EVs, which are now ready for hire in Kirkcaldy.

H2ME, Vienne, Lothian Buses, Southern California Edison.

Huge hydrogen project: Hydrogen Mobility Europe (H2ME) will push FCV uptake in Europe with 63m euros. Further funding comes from the Fuel Cells and Hydrogen Joint Undertaking (FCH JU). The project will support the deployment of 325 fuel cell vehicles and 29 hydrogen refuelling stations in 10 countries.

Electric strategy: Vienna has agreed on a new strategy to electrify the Austrian capital. This time, politics will concentrate on electric cars as pedelecs are believed to have been integrated already. Fleets, deliveries and taxis are to become increasingly electric, while more charging infrastructure will be funded to attract private buyers.

Hybrid buses in Scotland: Lothian Buses will introduce 25 hybrid vehicles by Volvo by mid- to late 2017 in Edinburgh. Costs are around 12m pounds with funding being sought from the Scottish Green Bus Fund. The hybrid buses will be used on most polluted routes.

Smart grid learnings: Southern California Edison (SCE) is running one of the largest pilot schemes of smart grid demand response. Now, EV drivers are added to the game. They can choose between different pricing options based on demand. SCE wants to see how pricing impacts consumer behaviour.
