Government has launched its Electric Vehicle Pilot Project aimed at promoting low-carbon transportation technologies within the public service.

The fleet of eight – five vans and three cars – was unveiled on Sunday, during a ceremony in the carpark of Government Headquarters, Bay Street.

Minister with responsibility for Energy, Senator Darcy Boyce, in his keynote address, said that the pilot would allow government to ensure that the policy set in respect of electric vehicles was informed by empirical data.
