11 Moving Forward
The Switched On Scotland Roadmap sets out a comprehensive framework to structure actions and commitments to support the widespread adoption of plug-in vehicles. It establishes that this transformation will extend out to 2050 and will require strategies that change over time to respond to different needs and challenges.
The roadmap describes this transformation in three phases: launch, growth and take-off (shown in Figure 1). This review was undertaken to assess the successes and challenges encountered in the launch phase, and to inform the next phase of actions required to further grow the numbers of plug-in vehicles in Scotland.
These next phase actions will be published in a refresh of the roadmap in Spring 2017. As with the original roadmap, actions and commitments will be informed by extensive consultation with key stakeholders from across Scotland and beyond. This refresh will then provide an updated action plan that builds on the considerable progress made to date and maintains Scotland’s ambition to be at the forefront of this change.
