Realistic Planning for a Response Fleet Electrified Future 

To replace every vehicle in an emergency response fleet is not a realistic short-term goal. We understand that, so a measured approach is necessary.  

An achievable plan must include consideration of future needs, cost implications, and infrastructure requirements. Transitioning non-emergency vehicles early, with a long-term strategy towards full electrification is an approach adopted widely across emergency response bodies in the UK.

Case Study: NTW Foundation Trust 

NTW Solutions (a service run by NTW Foundation Trust) has a fleet of 1,400 cars and 90 service vehicles. The fleet ranges from pool cars to commercial vehicles. 

The Trust required charge points across 13 sites, with the ability to set different tariffs for different usage.  

Mer delivered: 

  • site surveys across all 13 sites to establish a strategy 
  • smart chargers with multiple tariff capabilities 
  • back-office software platform to meet data analytics needs

Frequently Asked Questions

Power availability can present an issue. There may be a need to bring in additional power with a new DNO connection. However, to prevent delays to the project, Mer would advise on installing load balanced charge points. 

Active load balancing and smart charging is a perfect solution to effectively balance the available power at your site. 

Mer will help you plan your  infrastructure strategically. In the case of blue light service vehicle charging, we recommend where to install charge points in key locations throughout the region – for example, A&E departments.
