We are on a mission to get Scotland driving electric
ChargePlace Scotland is Scotland’s national Electric Vehicle (EV) charging network. We’re owned and have been developed by the Scottish Government, and funded in partnership through a public grant from Local Authorities and other organisations.
We’re aiming to make owning an EV accessible for all Scottish driver by installing charge points across Scotland – from Shetland to the Scottish borders.
Our network has grown from 55 public charge points in 2013 to over 2,500 in 2021. You can see all of our publicly available charge and their status on our live map – where you can also see the charger type and LIVE availability.
We’re growing our network all the time, with new charge points installed regularly with the ongoing support of Transport Scotland – all to offer our members more charging places, more ways to save money and more benefits.
Home the Electric A9
EVs will help all of Scotland reduce greenhouse gas emissions, improve air quality, and support our national renewable energy ambitions. To make it happen though, they must be viable for all of Scotland.
That’s why we’re proud to introduce the Electric A9. Scotland’s longest EV-ready route will stand as a beacon to those at home and abroad. It is a clear signal that EVs are a viable, sustainable option now, and that the provision of this infrastructure clearly supports the Scottish Government’s vision to phase out the need for new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2032.
The Highland Council is introducing a charging tariff
The Highland Council has taken a decision to introduce a charging tariff to ensure they can continue to maintain the chargers they own on the network.
