Electric vehicle charging points

Our future plans

We have installed over 100 charging points in areas with no off-street parking with funding from the Scottish Government and the UK Government. Scottish Government has achieved its aim of establishing one of the most comprehensive networks in Europe, and the most charge points per capita of any nation within the UK.

Funding is reducing and so we, like other councils in Scotland, are now looking to work with commercial partners to continue to install more public charging points in Edinburgh.

If you have any suggestions for future charging points, please email us at electricvehicles@edinburgh.gov.uk with

  • street name
  • postcode
  • contact email address
  • whether you have access to off-street parking.

This is not a guarantee that we will install charging points in your street, however it will help us to build a list of areas with demand for charging infrastructure. We may not be able to respond to individual requests based on the high volume of emails we receive.
