Dear David Smith,

ENVIRONMENTAL INFORMATION (SCOTLAND) REGULATIONS 2004 – REQUEST FOR INFORMATION

I refer to your information request regarding Electric Vehicle charging points, our ref: 19318.

I am pleased to enclose the information you requested and trust that it meets your requirements.

Request/Response:

1) How many public electric vehicle (EV) charging points do you currently have in your council area?

Response: 22 public locations, 35 electric vehicle charging units offering 67 charging facilities at any one time.

2 & 3) How many do you plan to have by 2020? How many do you plan to have by 2032?

Response: The publically accessible Electric Charging Network within Fife has been grant funded by Transport Scotland. Fife Council has no capital funding to expand the network.

We are asked each year where we would like to expand the network. Transport Scotland considers the whole network ie across Scotland and are trying to meet the needs of EV drivers who are trying to travel greater distances rather than short local journeys.
