Dynamon are excited to be part of the Association for Public Service Excellence (APSE) Annual Seminar, called ‘Future proofing the frontline’ today.
Nick Bridle, Dynamon’s Customer success manager, and Andrea Richardson, Business development manager, will be speaking at the Climate Change and Renewables Strategic Forum workshop in Belfast today, and Nick will be presenting the award to the Overall Council of the Year at the APSE Service Awards, taking place at Titanic Belfast this evening.
APSE is dedicated to promoting excellence in the delivery of frontline services to local communities around the UK, with more than 300 local authorities and organisations as members.
Most of these organisations are in the process of working out how they can move their vehicles to electric, and crucially making that move without affecting the provision of frontline services. It’s a process for which Dynamon software can be integral.
The issue with frontline services moving to electric vehicles is that they have to work for them from minute one, day one. There’s no opportunity for some testing and trialling on the job: if they don’t deliver vital services, those services let down people with need.
Also, as public sector organisations, it is important they deliver an environmentally sustainable service too, and being able to move vehicles to electric is an important part of this. APSE helps maximise the opportunities for members to work together on the green energy agenda, and as many local authorities have already declared ‘climate emergencies’ as part of their decarbonisation and sustainability plan, Dynamon can help support this transition to 2030.
This means local authorities need to understand what can be moved to electric, when, and where. With Dynamon’s ZERO software, they can analyse and predict which vehicles could be swapped for electric alternatives now, and which will need more time.
Local authorities and organisations can also use the software to model charging need, looking at usage, depots and locations, understanding what level of charging will be needed, or how operations could be revised to take into account EV usage.
Then there is procurement. When spending public funds, it is essential that money is used wisely, and so ZERO can help these authorities and organisations understand the cost of infrastructure needed, and the cost of the EVs too.
ZERO helps by modelling the charging need, which in turn means organisations can implement charging systems that are fit for purpose, and not over-specced. After all, there’s no need to spend funds on high speed chargers if it turns out vehicles don’t actually need them to successfully perform their duties. It’s about getting a right-sized, accurately costed charging network.
So it’s tremendously exciting to be working with APSE, and local authorities and organisations, on getting the transition to electric vehicles right, and crucially, right first time.
