It aims to establish Scotland as an EV pioneer, maximizing the economic, environmental and social benefits of EVs as an integral part of a sustainable transport system and a smart energy grid.
A Collaborative Partnership
E-cosse has been jointly initiated by Transport Scotland and WWF Scotland. This will create a mechanism for achieving government’s commitments on EVs while ensuring that there is an ambitious plan for EVs to contribute to Scotland’s climate change targets.
E-cosse will engage stakeholders throughout the EV sector to create shared commitments across government and industry.
Advancing Electric Vehicles in Scotland
E-cosse is run by Urban Foresight and is undertaking three key activities to advance EVs in Scotland:
- EV Strategy Board: a high-level forum of leaders from government and industry to promote policies and programmes that advance EV adoption and maximise economic opportunitiesfor Scotland.
- EV Roadmap: expert stakeholders will work with Transport Scotland to develop a shared vision and set future priorities and actions to advance wholesale adoption of EVs.
- EV Readiness Initiative: work to establish a portfolio of projects to advance EV adoption and implement the recommendations of the roadmap.
