Regarded as the UK’s most prestigious green business awards, BusinessGreen provides a platform for the country’s most innovative, important, and inspirational organisations working within the green economy.
The Transport Project of the Year Award recognises innovative and effective transport projects that have delivered new technologies or ways of working in order to successfully tackle the environmental and social costs associated with transport infrastructure.
As the first project of its kind in the UK, Zenobe’s revolutionary fleet electrification projects for National Express Group in Coventry and Birmingham not only removes polluting diesel vehicles from the roads, but als0 seamlessly utilises recycled ‘2nd life’ bus battery cells in an onsite battery energy storage system. This battery energy storage system provides grid support for the bus depot but also integrates with Zenobe’s other 74MW of batteries providing services to the National Grid. Zenobe’s new application of previously used bus batteries will allow the battery’s life to be extended by 30%.
