Challenge / Goal

The Manchester Metropolitan University is committed to reducing their carbon footprint and becoming ever more sustainable as a university. The university has a fleet of electric vehicles (EVs) already in use for its facilities teams and the mail deliveries are taking place by electric bikes. There are also 36 EV charging points across the university campus area.

As a next step, they wanted to provide staff with the option of leaving their own vehicles at home, with the possibility to use an electric car for business journeys. The staff travel would mainly travel short distances (averaging 25 miles) in the Greater Manchester region.


The University has added two 30KW electric cars to the share scheme, allowing more staff to opt for a low-carbon option for business journeys and leave their cars at home. The new vehicles are part of the Triangulum project, funded by the European Commission, which sees Manchester City Council working with Manchester Metropolitan and the University of Manchester to transform their vehicle fleets and make significant energy savings, while demonstrating the power of the new innovations to help create economic growth.

  • Type-2 (7kW) chargers with two sockets per access points, equipped with RFID readers (managed by an external company)
  • 30kWh Nissan Leaf standard model
  • Enterprise booking system which is managed by a third party enterprise through an online booking system

The online booking system and RFID cards are used to access the vehicles, which eliminates the need for transferring keys between users.

Citizen participation

Citizen participation included consultation with staff and frequent car users to find out the required needs of the system.
