To ask the Scottish Government for what reason the system operator for electric vehicle charging was changed in July 2021.
Current status: Answered by Graeme Dey on 16 November 2021
The ChargePlace Scotland (CPS) Single Framework Agreement with Charge Your Car Ltd (now named BP Pulse and previously BP Chargemaster), who ran CPS on behalf of the Scottish Government, expired in summer 2021. A new Single Framework Agreement was put out to tender in 2020 and following the Scottish Government procurement process a new operator (SWARCO eVolt Ltd) was appointed.
