Creation of low carbon transport hubs in Scotland's cities

This project aims to create low carbon transport hubs in and around major cities. Greater uptake of electric vehicles, with easier access to charging points, can help reduce carbon emissions, improve air quality, and even create jobs.

Additionality

Does this project add to existing infrastructure efforts

Amber Electric Vehicle infrastructure is being developed across Scotland, including some isolated cases of hydrogen infrastructure, but this proposal is a significant increase in scale.

Prosperity

Does this project contribute to the prosperity of Scotland's people and businesses

Amber Local employment during development and a small number of ongoing jobs in operation.

Co-benefits

Does this project bring social benefits, beyond economic and environmental benefits

Green Health benefits from improvements in air quality, reduction in congestion if reliance on private car ownership is reduced.

Environment

Does this project further environmental goals in addition to carbon reduction

Amber Improvements in local air quality. Some concerns over the environmental impacts of EV batteries.

Behaviours

Does this project help people take on low carbon behaviours

Green A multi-stranded approach (taxis, car-clubs, distribution vehicles, high profile infrastructure) will encourage a high degree of public engagement.
