NHS Scotland unveils first solar EV charging hub

3ti, a designer, installer, funder and operator of solar car parks, has completed the installation of a pop-up solar car park and EV charging hub at Raigmore Hospital in Inverness, Scotland. The latest delivery is the first of its kind to be operational in Scotland and provides hospital users access to 12 charge points boosted by renewable energy.

With a fleet of EVs already in operation at the hospital, Papilio3 addresses the growing demand for accessible and convenient charging.

Brian Johnstone, Head of Energy, Environment and Sustainability at NHS Highland, says, “As part of our commitment to supporting the delivery of healthcare in the future, we understand that our environmental responsibilities go beyond our services. As an organisation, we are looking to develop innovative ways to harness electricity and utilise renewable energy on-site, which Papilio3 is a great example of. With the introduction of Papilio3, NHS Highland is now better positioned to support patients, staff and visitors with EVs at Raigmore. We hope that this investment in EV infrastructure helps to convince others to make the switch over to zero-emission vehicles.”
