Danielle Rowley, the Shadow Minister for Climate Justice and Green Jobs, has visited the electric vehicle hub in Dundee, which is celebrating a year of generating energy and carbon savings. Centrica Business Solutions designed and built the EV Hub, introducing fast and rapid charging, powered by solar power generation and on-site battery storage. The city now has one of the most extensive charging infrastructures in the UK. Nine out of the top 10 most used rapid chargers in Scotland are located in Dundee. The city also boasts 102 ‘plug-in’ electric taxis and 30% of buses are now electric. In addition, Dundee City Council has the largest fleet of electric vehicles of any local authority in the UK, with 87 to date. Over the last 12 months there have been more than 24,000 charging sessions at the Princess Street site, saving approximately 256 tons of CO2. The solar produced has allowed a car to go to the moon and back 2.5 times.
