Transport Scotland and the Scottish Futures Trust have published a new report on public electric vehicle charging infrastructure. It sets out how Scotland can grow and expand provision to enable households and business to confidently switch to electric vehicles and help tackle climate change.
TransportandEngergy.com reports the joint report highlights the current approaches and constraints associated with present models of delivery. The market engagement exercise outlines future opportunities for businesses and for local authorities.
It considers models which encourage greater financial innovation and partnership working between the public and private sectors, benefitting from wider skills and expertise, whilst increasing the pace of rollout.
The report also recognises the need to maintain a consumer-focused approach that provides equity of access to all users as part of the just transition to net zero.
