ubitricity: Supporting a Greener NHS
With a full portfolio of charge point solutions, we work alongside the NHS in the transition to become the world’s first net zero National health service.
How do electric vehicles help to deliver a Greener NHS?
In 2020, the NHS launched its campaign for a Greener NHS, aiming to become the world’s first net zero national health service. As part of this scheme the NHS announced two key targets:
- To reduce the emissions the NHS control directly (the NHS Carbon Footprint), net zero by 2040, with an ambition to reach an 80% reduction by 2028 to 2032
- To reduce the emissions the NHS can influence (our NHS Carbon Footprint Plus), net zero by 2045, with an ambition to reach an 80% reduction by 2036 to 2039.
One of the areas targeted for reduction is transport and travel: by working towards the world’s first zero-emission ambulance by 2022 and focusing on a shift to zero emission vehicles by 2032 for the rest of the fleet.
Electrification of NHS transport
As part of the greener NHS scheme, the NHS has pledged for 90% of the NHS fleet to use low, ultra-low and zero-emission vehicles by 2028, with the aim for the entire fleet to eventually reach net zero emissions.
In order to support this fleet the NHS will also need to roll-out comprehensive electric charging infrastructure across the NHS. Alongside providing easy charging options to incentivise staff to use electric vehicles, this will include charging solutions for:
- Staff parking
- Visitor parking
- Fleet solutions
- Overnight charging
