Electric Vehicles

We have secured funding via the City of Edinburgh Council ‘Switched on Fleets’ programme and Energy Savings Trust to increase electric vehicle usage on campus.

To meet the growing demand for electric vehicles we have installed electric charging points at various locations.  We currently have 21 at various locations across the City Areas and a hub of 10 at the King’s Buildings. Funding has been secured from Energy Savings Trust and plans are in place for third and fourth phase installations at the BioQuarter and Easter Bush.

All of our charge points are available for members of public to use as well as University branded vehicles. The ChargePlace Scotland website provides information on charge points across Scotland, their availability and charging speed (Standard, Fast and Rapid).
