Emission-free delivery and distribution company, Gnewt Cargo, has gone that extra mile for the environment by teaming up with energy monitoring specialist, Energeno.
London-based Gnewt Cargo provides environmentally-friendly logistic solutions by using small electric vans and cargo cycles to transport goods across the Capital for third party logistics companies and larger retailers, including TNT and Office Depot. After recently expanding its green fleet, Gnewt approached Energeno to explore its energy consumption.
Using Energeno’s Wattson Classic, a small monitoring device which gives precise readings of electricity being used by appliances in the home, office or an industrial setting, Gnewt has been able to quantify the energy used by its vehicles per mile and the amount of electricity needed to charge its entire fleet overnight.
Nick Spencer, Operations Director at Gnewt Cargo who sought out the services of Energeno explains: "While our smaller vehicles are charged from a standard 240v three pin source, the larger vehicles we’re starting to introduce require a three-phase feed. We wanted to relate our energy consumption to real mileage and commercial output and approached Energeno as experts in this field. We pride ourselves on providing a 100 per cent emission-free transportation service and through our work with Energeno, we can further demonstrate our commitment to our environmental responsibility."
Mark Elliott, director of operations at Energeno, comments: "With an increasing focus on carbon footprint and environmental controls, it is important that businesses are aware of their energy consumption. As a company, Gnewt Cargo is a green pioneer and we’re delighted to be a part of further developing its energy management."
Energeno will be exhibiting at this year’s Ecobuild (20th-22nd March at Excel in London) on stand N3240 under the BPVA Pavilion where it will be showcasing its latest Watson additions including the Solar Plus. The Solar Plus is a unique monitor for domestic solar panel systems that shows how much power is being generated, what is being saved on bills, the building’s electrical carbon footprint and what profit is being produced when panels are generating more energy than the household requires.
