“At ScottishPower, we’re working to speed up the switch to electric transport.“
Accelerate the race to net zero
It’s a change for the better – for colleagues, for the company, and for the environment.
We’re proud of what we’ve achieved on our green journey so far.
At ScottishPower, our commitment to speeding up the switch to electric transport doesn’t stop. We’ve helped bring almost one-third of the UK’s renewable electricity onto the grid and we’re already working closely with communities and strategic partnerships to achieve their net zero plans. Inside ScottishPower, our EV fleet scheme has accelerated the transition to electric vehicles across our businesses. And, we’ve incentivised employees to make the personal choice to switch to an EV.
The electrification of transport is a big task, but we’re committed to delivering a better future, quicker for everyone. By taking the right approach now, we believe the UK can help tackle climate change and accelerate the race to net zero.
Developing renewable energy responsibly
For over 20 years, we’ve been pioneers of onshore and offshore wind across the UK. And we’ve invested billions in our windfarms.
There’s no point driving a clean car if the fuel isn’t green, and that’s why we generate only 100% green electricity. It’s also why we continue to invest in UK wind projects to increase the amount of clean energy available.

Preparing and planning for the future
Our electricity distribution and transmission business keeps the power flowing for over 3.5m homes and businesses. It’s at the heart of enabling the decarbonisation and electrification of transport that is vital towards tackling climate change and hitting the UK, Welsh and Scottish Government’s ambitious net zero targets. SP Energy Networks celebrates European Mobility Week by shining a light on just some of the cutting-edge projects its people are leading on to drive towards a cleaner, greener electric future that everyone can benefit from.
From helping community transport groups transition from diesel to EVs and supporting councils in their ambitions to move to electric buses, through the £20m SPEN Green Economy Fund, to partnering with Transport Scotland to deliver over 40 public EV charging hubs in places people need them most, there is so much more to SPEN than keeping the lights on.
