New electric vehicle charging points

We have been awarded £2.2m of funding from Transport Scotland through the Switched on Towns and Cities Fund for installing electric vehicle (EV) on street chargers across the city. Due to the impact of COVID-19, the funding has been extended to April 2022.

A total of 66 on-street charging points will be put in across the city as part of the first phase of implementation.

Below is a list of the location and type of EV On Street chargers which are set to be installed across Edinburgh over Phase 1 of the project. It is expected to be completed by 31 March 2022.
