The EEMS Accelerate project brings together a consortium of specialist UK organisations to develop and demonstrate high performance electric cars. This project is innovative both in the consortium structure and the individual technologies it supports. It provides a unique opportunity for a range of SMEs in the sector to engage in extended real world testing of their vehicles in a way usually restricted to larger manufacturing. In addition, it will for the first time facilitate a sharing of more general data across all of the manufacturers in the consortium, providing benchmarking of common performance factors across an emerging market sector. The consortium consists of: Delta Motorsport, Ecotricity, Green Motion, Lightning car, Westfield Sportscars and Ricardo-AEA.
Green Motion - the world’s first fully environmentally friendly car and van rental company offers both retail/leisure and corporate hire customers the choice to rent vehicles featuring the latest in CO2 and low carbon emission technology. In addition to offering green vehicles for hire, Green Motion also abides by its own all embracing environmental policy.
