The “Switched On Scotland: A Roadmap to Widespread Adoption of Plug-in Vehicles” sets out Scotland’s long-term strategy for advancing electric and plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (EVs/PHEVs). The Roadmap introduces a new vision for Scotland that, ”by 2050, Scottish towns, cities and communities will be free from the damaging emissions of petrol and diesel fueled vehicles. A significant reduction in greenhouse gas emissions will be accompanied by marked improvements in local air quality, noise pollution and public health.
To achieve the Scottish Government’s vision, Perth and Kinross Council have – in partnership with Transport Scotland, the Office for Low Emission Vehicles, and the Energy Savings Trust – installed chargers across the Perth and Kinross region. Currently, there are 30 chargers accessible to the public with ongoing installations to implement many more. Part of these ongoing installations include Electric A9 sites at Broxden Park & Ride, Auchterarder, Dunkeld & Pitlochry. These installations will be a part of Transport Scotland’s Electric A9 project providing charging infrastructure from Falkirk to Scrabster Harbour.
