About the EV group

ARENA projects

The Electric Vehicle Grid Integration Working Group is considering how a growing number of electric vehicles can best be integrated into Australia’s electricity system.

Our purpose is to:

  • provide a central forum for key industry and government stakeholders to collaborate and coordinate EV activities
  • approach EVs from an energy sector perspective but with transport and infrastructure partners
  • promote policy and regulatory development before wide scale EV adoption begins.

We have undertaken a discovery phase to identify risks and opportunities, potential high priority actions and related pieces of work. This phase concluded with a workshop in December 2019, which aimed to:

  • prioritise EV opportunities and issues
  • agree on areas of focus for the working group
  • begin establishing task forces and foundations of the 2020 work plan.

We are currently considering the outcomes of the workshop and designing the task forces to be implemented in 2020.
