For the past few years, electric bikes (e-bikes for short) have been growing in popularity as more and more people turn to cycling as their primary mode of transport.


E-bikes are the perfect solution if you are looking to commute by bike but your route takes you more than 5 miles or features a few too many hills. If you are considering purchasing an e-bike there is a new, exciting funding opportunity available in Scotland through Energy Saving Trust. They offer an interest-free loan to buy an e-bike. This scheme is funded by Transport Scotland (an agency of the Scottish Government).

The e-Bike loan is for up to £6,000 with a repayment period of 4 years and covers the following (per household):

  • 2 x e-bikes capped at £3,000 each
  • 1 x family e-cargo bike capped at £6,000
  • 1 x adaptive e-bike capped at £6,000

If a non e-bike is more suitable to meet an individual's needs, applications can be considered by Energy Saving Trust on a case by case basis.
