We’re on a mission to get Scotland driving electric.
ChargePlace Scotland is Scotland’s national Electric Vehicle (EV) charging network. Owned and developed by the Scottish Government, and funded in partnership through a public grant from Local Authorities and other organisations. Aiming to install charge points across Scotland from Shetland to the Scottish borders, making owning an Electric Vehicle accessible for all Scottish drivers.
The ChargePlace Scotland network has grown from 55 public charge points in 2013 to over 1,500 in 2020. All publicly available charge points are displayed on our live map, which provides details about the location, type, status and availability of each unit.
New charge points are installed regularly on the network, with the ongoing support of Transport Scotland. In addition, our network offers members significant money-saving and EV charging benefits.
- Low-cost charging Network members can charge for free at a high majority of our charge points
- Fast charging options Fast and rapid chargers are available to charge your EV in most Scottish cities
- Accessible locations Approximately 70% of publicly available charge points are outside Scotland’s cities
To access the network and start charging your EV, you simply need to register for a ChargePlace Scotland account and order an access card.
We understand buying an EV can be a new experience, and to assist you with this, we have set up a help centre to answer frequently asked questions. Our network is supported by a 24-hour 365 day a year helpline for our members.
We regularly announce new charge points and share the latest news about the EV industry via our social media pages. Follow us on Twitter and Facebook to keep up to date with all the latest developments across the network and helpful guidance for EV drivers.
