The University of Freiburg goes electric

Replacing combustion vehicles with e-mobility is an important step towards reaching climate neutrality and is mentioned as a key measure in the university's mobility concept, which is currently in development.

The university has therefore replaced three diesel-powered service vehicles with electric ones in 2021: The electric sweeper is now powered by green electricity and the Institute of Hydrology has received a new electric van to replace its station wagon. In addition, a new electric small truck was purchased in 2021 for the housekeeping service in Institutsviertel. As a result, the service vehicle fleet consists currently of 22 diesel vehicles as well as two hybrid and three electric vehicles.
