This November, Glasgow will be hosting the United Nations COP26 climate change conference, which will bring together 2000 world leaders and activists to find solutions to address climate change. As a Principal Partner, ScottishPower is already investing a total of £10bn over five years - £6 million every working day - to power a greener future for everyone living and working in the UK.
ScottishPower e-bikes, powered by nextbike, are a key part of this committment, with over 72,000 e-bike journeys already completed and 27,670 kg of CO2 saved since the sponsorship started in Glasgow in January 2020. And we're hoping to save even more! As part of the Zero Carbon Communities (ZCC) campaign to help support communities to deliver on climate change we hope to give users a greener, more sustainable way to travel with our fleet of 120+ e-bikes and 38 electric stations.
University of Leeds researchers looked into the benefits of e-bikes, and their findings were exceptionally positive stating “even replacing just 20% of car miles travelled with e-bike travel would mean 4-8 million fewer tonnes of carbon emitted each year.” It's a good reason to get out and ride!
ScottishPower is part of the Iberdrola Group, one of the world’s largest integrated utility companies and a world leader in wind energy. It is the first integrated energy company in the UK to generate 100% green electricity. Our focus is on wind energy, smart grids and driving the change to a cleaner, electric future.
A Principal Partner for the United Nations climate change conference (COP26) to be held in Glasgow during November, ScottishPower is investing £10billion in the UK over five years – £6 million every working day – doubling the amount of renewable energy it produces, modernising its electricity networks to support green transport and heating, and helping its customers make the change to smarter energy use.
