Electric vehiclesProject Chargefox Electric Vehicle Charging Network Project
This report is a summary of the lessons learnt by Chargefox during the delivery of the early stages of their Electric Vehicle Charging Network Project.
The Project is the development and construction of at least 22 Charging Sites along major driving routes between Brisbane and Adelaide along the coast of Eastern Australia, in and around Perth in Western Australia, and in Tasmania, at approximately 200km apart. Each Charging Site will hold at least two (2) DC Charging Stations of a minimum charging capacity of 150kW each at the conclusion of the Project. Due to the additional stage 2 funding from the Victorian Government, the Melbourne site will hold a total of four (4) ultra-rapid Charging Stations and two (2) 50kW DC charging stations. In addition, four (4) other regional Victorian sites, will also have two (2) 50kW DC chargers added to them, allowing four cars to charge simultaneously at those sites. Other higher traffic sites on the network may include additional Charging Stations at lower capacity. The Project will allow all EV models currently available for sale in Australia to charge through its stations.
