Kerry Alexander, Director, Infrastructure Finance and Programmes at infrastructure body, the Scottish Futures Trust, said: “We are working closely with Transport Scotland, pooling our collective infrastructure expertise to scope out the requirements to accelerate the delivery of public electric vehicle charging facilities. 

“To deliver at scale and pace, we need to adopt innovative and commercially viable funding models to supplement Scottish Government funding.
