Electric vehiclesProject Ampol Addressing Blackspots Fast Charging
This first Lessons Learnt report focuses on fast charging station site selection, site design, equipment design. network provider engagement and operations and maintenance.
Round one of the Future Fuels Fund (‘FFF’), administered by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA) was made available to fund Battery Electric Vehicle (‘BEV’) public fast charging infrastructure in capital cities and regional centres.
The purpose is to install a network of BEV public fast charging stations that address “blackspots”, or areas that donot currently have convenient access to public fast charging stations. Given the current early stage of the BEV industry, there are many blackspots within Australia’s capital cities and large regional centres. The objective is to address blackspots by improving the availability of public BEV fast charging stations which will support BEV uptake by the public and businesses, including fleets.
