Fisher & Paykel Healthcare is helping its employees make the switch to electric vehicles (EVs) for their commute. It has installed 46 charging stations at its campus in East Tamaki in Auckland.
Since December 2016, the number of EVs being driven by employees has increased from 4 to 58.
The company provides electricity to staff at cost, thanks to backend billing provided by ChargeNet.
This smart transport project is part of the company’s wider sustainability initiative. Other initiatives include minimising air freight, installation of solar panels, shower facilities to encourage cycling, charging plugs for e-bikes, bike maintenance stands and pumps, encouraging public transport use, and providing dedicated premium car park spaces for employees who car share.
Fisher & Paykel Healthcare captures data about charging activity, power consumption, cost and other metrics, using ChargeNet software. It reports on this monthly.
This project was carried out with co-funding from the Government’s Low Emission Vehicle Contestable Fund administered by EECA.
