This report aims to describe the current state of the road vehicle electrification. Its scope includes road vehicles with plugs, charging, and enabling technology.
Australia is in the early stages of electrifying road transport, a process which is broadly seen as one necessary part of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to safer levels. Electrification is a complex process involving new technologies, infrastructures, practices, stakeholders, business models, and interactions between all of them.
This report aims to describe the current state of this landscape and recommend actions that can be taken by innovation funding bodies (such as ARENA) to enhance this uptake. Its scope includes road vehicles with plugs; charging; and enabling technology. This report does not include policy recommendations, although they are an extremely important part of the transport electrification puzzle.
