Glasgow unveils detailed net zero roadmap ahead of COP26

Based on forecasts commissioned by ScottishPower, the city will need to spend millions on enabling EV adoption, installing heatpumps and modernising its network

Glasgow has unveiled its first detailed roadmap setting out how to reach its Net Zero targets ahead of the COP26 climate conference taking place in November 2020.

Based on forecasts commissioned by ScottishPower from Capital Economics, the report outlines what needs to be done to become the UK’s first Net Zero city.

The study forecasts the city will need to install more than 175,000 electric vehicle (EV) charging points by 2030 to reach Net Zero, including nearly 17,000 chargers in non-residential areas - the total cost of these installations is expected to reach around £298 million.
