I include a copy of some of the information you requested in the excel document attached. This information relates to the type of chargers broken down to Local Authority owned and not by local authority area.

Some of the other information you have requested is available from the Scottish Transport Statistics Chapter 13: Environment and Emissions ( Information for 2021 is being collated at the moment and will be publish in February 2022.
