Electric Vehicle Infrastructure
The Highland Council’s ongoing commitment to tackling the climate emergency is being clearly evidenced through its ongoing Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure programme. The main drivers underpinning the EV infrastructure programme are:
- Scottish Government has pledged to phase out the need for new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030
- UK Government has pledged to end the sale of new petrol and diesel cars (excluding some hybrids) from 2030
A small EV Infrastructure project team (based within the Climate Change and Energy Team, Infrastructure & Environment Services) is delivering this project and driving other projects and initiatives forward whilst strategically planning for development opportunities.
We currently host over 90 EV charge points on the public network around the region.
For any queries relating to faults or the wider network, please contact Charge Place Scotland.via their website or the 24hr helpline, 0141 648 0750.
For generic information relating to Highland Council owned EV charge points, please email EVManagement@highland.gov.uk.
