The evidence base

Our vision for recharging

Our approach is not to mandate ‘a chargepoint on every corner’ – this is not necessary to help
the market grow and would be uneconomic. Rather, for plug-in vehicles to appeal to, and be a viable solution for, consumers, we wantScotland - Leading the charge on electric cars - gladdens EV users UK-wide.

Recharging at home

Taking the Strategy forward

We have set out much in this Strategy that we need to deliver. However, success will require the combined efforts of many.

Electricity distributors need to factor in additional demand from plug-in vehicles as they plan to reinforce the grid and consider how to introduce smart grid capabilities. Electricity suppliers have a valuable opportunity to develop new tariffs for plug-in vehicle owners and commercial models for the provision of recharging infrastructure.
