Aberdeen City Council is to investigate increasing the number of electric charging points for cars.
Councillors voted unanimously to carry out an appraisal to identify where the council can increase the number of charging points.
SNP group leader Stephen Flynn put forward the motion calling for the local authority to build on its hydrogen success by investing in an electric future too.
Examples exist of lampposts being converted to include vehicle charging points, as well as electric charging points being installed.
Last year a study by the RAC Foundation found the growth of electric car use could stall because of the public charging network.
It found that without widespread, reliable and easy-to-use charging points, the mass market appeal of ultra-green vehicles may be limited.
Mr Flynn said: “I think it’s right that all parties work together to deliver for Aberdeen.”
