Energy storage experts Powerstar, based in Sheffield, has purchased a fleet of four electrically powered road vehicles, putting the company on track to have all its road vehicles electrically powered by 2018.
The investment comes as part of a wider strategy to actively reduce energy consumption and carbon emissions as a company, whilst continuing to develop its range of energy saving technologies.
The company is also installing charging stations at its base in Sheffield. The stations will not only be able to charge all the cars in Powerstar’s fleet, but will also be available to guests and potential clients.
MD Dr. Alex Mardapittas said, "We are always looking for ways to reduce the company’s carbon emissions and with the development of our own Virtue EV fast charging system, it was a logical step to invest in a fleet of electric road vehicles."
