Camden Council has won a Sustainable Cities Award for Best Transport Initiative for its Electric Vehicle Trials Project.
The scheme offers eligible Camden businesses the opportunity to trial vehicles such as the Vauxhall Ampera, Toyota Prius Plug-in Hybrid or Renault Twizy for two weeks, completely free of charge or obligation.
The trials were recognised for making electric vehicles more accessible and positively influencing the purchasing decisions of businesses who rely on vehicles.
Camden has so far provided 22 free trials for businesses, and hosted two trial days for residents.
The award was presented on Tuesday 20 March by sustainable fashion designer Livia Firth at the Lord Mayor’s residence at Mansion House. The Sustainable City Awards have been running for 13 years.
