The public charging infrastructure is important to give EV drivers the ‘range confidence’ that they will not be stranded but is also the main cause of problems reported. Currently, there are twenty eight charging points across the Orkney. Most of the chargers are provided and operated by Orkney Islands Council, this is expected to change in due course.
In the spring of 2019, a number of the Fast chargers were upgraded and a 2nd (50KW) Rapid charger was added at Great Western Road. In 2020 additional chargers are planned in Stromness by the harbour.
