E-cosse aims to establish Scotland as an electric vehicle pioneer, maximising the economic, environmental and social benefits of EVs as an integral part of a sustainable transport system and a smart energy grid.

E-cosse was jointly initiated by Transport Scotland, Urban Foresight and WWF Scotland in 2012 as a multi-stakeholder partnership to support the achievement of government’s commitments on plug-in vehicles while ensuring that there is an ambitious plan to contribute to Scotland’s climate change targets.

The partnership is now run by Urban Foresight with Transport Scotland and Energy Saving Trust Scotland.

E-cosse engages all relevant stakeholders to combine expertise, align resources and create shared commitments to accelerate the adoption of plug-in vehicles.
