PhD Partnership Success!

Over the past two years we have worked in close partnership with a student from Delft University in Holland to monitor the success of our electric vehicles and whether or not such a ground breaking project can be extended to other cities. Michiel Frenaij’s PhD thesis is titled ‘Critical success and fail factors of electric buses in public transport: A review of existing European electric bus projects.’ Michiel reviewed our electric bus project in Coventry alongside other projects in Madrid, Frankfurt, Vienna and Rome. The PhD thesis has put Coventry on the academic map with electric vehicles.

We are delighted to announce that Michiel has passed and will be awarded a PhD!

Plus, it is great to see that many other bus operators and local authorities such as Nottingham and York are now following where we led with the pioneering introduction of large-scale electric vehicles to the UK.
