One of the biggest (and growing) sources of greenhouse gas emissions is the transport sector.
There’s been significant climate emergency declarations and policies on many levels of government, focused on low-emission technology. Many states are encouraging Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEVs) to reach net-zero emissions by 2050.
ZEVs use clean, renewable energy. They reduce emissions and air pollution, making our cities and towns more liveable.
All this means switching to EV fleets is a priority. And as more car owners switch to EVs in Australia and New Zealand, residents need accessible and reliable public charging.
The grant program will help businesses, councils and community organisations install public EV fast-charging stations at recreational community destinations and other high-use locations.
It will ensure even coverage of fast-charging infrastructure, reducing ‘range anxiety’ for EV owners. EV owners can find the locations of chargers online (such as plugshare.com) and can plan their trip.
The AURIGA unit is the core of these charging stations. It’s been installed in more than 12 sites across Australia—and has become the AC charger of choice for Australian businesses and local governments. It’s reliable, simple to run, and built to suit our unique weather conditions
This AURIGA unit is fully manufactured in Victoria by an innovative and growing team of electric vehicle experts, including graduate engineers & electricians. Electric vehicle charging station installation and support will be provided by us—Australia’s EV charging experts.
EV charging grants will be used to build EV charging hardware in Victoria, encouraging local green tech jobs and skills.
