The app is available free of charge for use on Android and iOS mobile devices. Download from the App Store (Apple UK) and Google Play Store.

Who is it for?

Those who own or lease an ultra-low emission vehicle (ULEV), which includes zero emission vehicles (ZEV), plug-in hybrid electric vehicles (PHEV) or range extended electric vehicles (REEV).

Key features

Help shape Scotland’s low carbon future

All data collected is anonymous and will help us better understand how ULEV vehicles are being used by private car owners in Scotland. Your data will help:

  • Forecast demand for charging facilities and associated energy requirements
  • Inform plans regarding the required mix of domestic, workplace and destination charging infrastructure
  • Inform policies required to support increased electric vehicle uptake
  • Calculate the carbon savings offered by increased electric vehicle adoption
