REVVY, STEADY, GO: The Shell Recharge initiative is being brought to Scotland after it met with great success south of the border

Energy giant Shell has announced it is throwing its weight behind renewable energy in Scotland with the introduction of three electric charge points at locations around the country.

Charging docks will be placed at service stations in Aberdeen, Glasgow and Dunblane in a move which rolls out an already well established initiative, Shell Recharge, north of the border following its success in England. Jane Lindsay-Green, Shell UK future fuels manager, said the sites were chosen because of their proximity to main driving routes, and where there is an opportunity to reach more EV drivers.

However she stressed the firm would be looking to roll more out across the country soon, especially in the Highlands.

Last week The Press and Journal reported the Orkney Islands were leading the way in electric car purchases, with more green vehicles per head than anywhere in the north and north east.
