THANKS TO THE SCOTTISH LOCAL AUTHORITIES, WE COULD WELL BE COMING TO AN EV CHARGER NEAR YOU...

To ensure that the spectacle that is the EV Rally, we are working hard with the local authorities, whose regions we pass through, to ensure that they help us where they can. And they have been fantastic. They have all agreed what a fantastic event this will be and are keen to be a part of it. Some are simply happy for us to pass through, showcasing their charging network as part of the event narrative… Others want to make the most of the opportunity this represents, by getting some key Council staff to meet the vehicles and drivers, as they arrive, and to do a piece to camera.

Here are some of the local authorities that we are working with:

Glasgow City Council

With many vehicle manufacturers phasing out the production of petrol and diesel engine vehicles, the Scottish Government’s commitment to phase out said vehicles by 2032 and the increasing product choice, ever there has never been a better time to consider an EV for your next car.

Most of the major vehicle and charge point manufacturers will be on hand to introduce the latest vehicles, offer test drives and explain how EVs can benefit.

ChargePlace Glasgow

​​​​​​​In September 2017, as part of the Scottish Government’s Programme for Government, Nicola Sturgeon announced that all petrol and diesel vehicles would be phased out in Scotland by 2032. 

The Highland Council

By 2025, the Highlands will be a region where its residents and visitors can move around easily by low carbon and sustainable forms of transport. The region is well connected both in terms of transport links and through digital connectivity. Buildings across the region will have been energy renovated, and new buildings are energy efficient. The growing majority of buildings in rural areas will be heated by renewable sources.

Dundee City Council

Dundee is the perfect city for Electric Vehicles and we pride ourselves on being Scotland’s leading city in the adoption, promotion and operation of electric vehicles. As the city is small and compact it makes the city especially well-suited to widespread EV use.

East Ayrshire Council

East Ayrshire Council’s electric vehicle fleet has reached an incredible milestone – 1 million miles to be exact – that’s the equivalent of travelling the circumference of earth 40 times! The Council started its journey with electric vehicles back in 2015, with the introduction of seven vehicles to their fleet. This number has grown year on year and there are now 91 vehicles in the electric fleet.

East Lothian Council

As well as offering significant environmental benefits - less air pollution, less noise, lower CO2 emissions - electric vehicles (EVs) can save you money. To support you in making the switch to electric power, East Lothian Council provides a reliable network of nearly 100 chargepoints including:

Renfrewshire Council

Renfrewshire Council offers free electric vehicle charging throughout Renfrewshire’s Towns and Villages.  We continue to improve and expand on this EV charging network and will have over 100 public available charging bays by the end of 2021.

The Council first introduced electric vehicles back in 2015.  This number has grown year on year and there are now 132 vehicles in the electric fleet. The council have recently introduced 16 seater minibuses and 3.5 tonne Large Vans to our Zero emission fleet.

Falkirk Council

Forth Valley for Net Zero
Forth Valley for Net Zero counts down to UN Climate Change Conference COP26 in Glasgow in November and marks the start of a decade of delivery in the area to drive down emissions to meet Net Zero targets.

The aim of the campaign is to showcase what businesses and local authorities are doing now to help achieve Net Zero and attract COP26 delegates into the area to find out more about the technological and process innovations taking place that will help them meet their Net Zero targets. 

North Ayrshire Council

The Scottish Government have committed to phase out the need for new petrol and diesel cars and vans by 2030. Electric vehicles (EV) have several environmental benefits including no exhaust emissions and less air pollution; they are also cost efficient to run.

North Ayrshire Council (NAC) is committed to promoting the uptake of EV’s and developing a robust charging infrastructure. NAC currently hosts 28 publicly accessible EV charge points situated around the local authority area.
