Creating Europe’s most visionary electric vehicle city
Strategy, projects and funding to make Dundee a world-leading EV city
How did Dundee become Europe’s most visionary electric vehicle city?
In October 2018, Urban Foresight’s CEO Dr David Beeton collected the prestigious E-Visionary award for the City of Dundee at a ceremony held by the World Electric Vehicle Association in Japan.
Urban Foresight’s partnership with Dundee City Council started in 2011. The Scottish Government commissioned us to develop an electric vehicle (EV) roadmap and to design a series of projects to phase out fossil fuel vehicle sales by 2032 (read the full roadmap here).
As part of this work, Urban Foresight also developed the concept of an exemplar city to set a benchmark for implementing Scotland’s roadmap and to become a hub for global best practice.
