23 April 2021: UK-based Tevva, a pioneer in developing long-range zero emission truck capabilities, and Vattenfall Network Solutions, a division of Vattenfall, the leading European energy company, have joined forces to help businesses switch to a zero-emission vehicle fleet and to reduce the overall carbon impact of their operations.
As the sale of new petrol and diesel cars and vans are phased out to reduce carbon emissions, Tevva and Vattenfall Network Solutions are exploring ways of providing a complete zero emission transport solution, by supplying energy infrastructure and sustainable electricity and hydrogen supply solutions, as well as Tevva’s long range electric vehicles to businesses to help them on their journey to electrification.
Tevva is an electric truck company whose range extension technology allows its 7.5-19t (Class 5-8) vehicles to go further than competitors with minimal environmental impact. While the main energy source to Tevva’s electric trucks is grid electricity, the company optimises hydrogen and fuel cell (H2FC) range extension to support the unique full-day, long-distance duty cycles of freight trucks.
Vattenfall Network Solutions can provide connections to the electricity grid along with the electrical and hydrogen infrastructure for a vehicle fleet or depot. Vattenfall Energy Trading GmbH, a wholly-owned entity of Vattenfall AB, offers UK businesses, including operators of hydrogen electrolyzers, the option to purchase renewable electricity, generated by harnessing renewable energy sources such as wind and solar through Power Purchase Agreements.
Vattenfall currently operates more than 22,000 electric vehicle charging points in Sweden, the Netherlands, Germany and Norway. They have decades of experience developing and operating electrical networks throughout Europe. Their goal is to offer all customers climate smart energy and to enable a life free from fossil fuels within one generation.
Vattenfall Network Solutions “Power-as-a-Service” model provides businesses wishing to switch to a 100% zero emission vehicle fleet with the energy infrastructure as a service, rather than an expensive and risky asset for businesses to invest in, build, own and maintain.
