Vattenfall has announced it is switching its entire fleet to electric vehicles over five years.

That means more than 3,500 passenger and light commercial vehicles in Sweden, the Netherlands and Germany will be replaced with greener alternatives.

It is part of its plans to become climate neutral by 2050.

Martijn Hagens, Head of Customers and Solutions Vattenfall and responsible for E-mobility said: “The outlines for success are already in place. Driving electric is far cheaper than driving on fossil fuels and we help to build a solid charging infrastructure in Europe. But to be able to fully switch our fleet, availability and freedom of choice in cars are very important as well.”

The company offers charging solutions to both retail and business customers and operates nearly 6,000 charging points in the three nations.

It has joined forces with Aberdeen Science Centre to launch a new education programme aiming to get young people interested and involved in the offshore wind industry.
