About the EV workstream
The Electric Vehicle Grid Integration Workstream 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.
Following a discovery phase to identify risks and opportunities in late 2019, the EV Working Group agreed to focus on four priority areas:
- EV data availability
- Standards development
- Residential tariffs and incentives
- High capacity tariffs and connections
The Electric Vehicle Grid Integration Workstream Group consists of nine organisations:
- Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA)
- Australian Energy Market Operator (AEMO)
- Australian Energy Regulator (AER)
- Australian Energy Market Commission (AEMC)
- Electric Vehicle Council (EVC)
- Australian Energy Council (AEC)
- Energy Networks Australia (ENA)
- The Department of Industry, Science, Energy and Resources (DISER)
- Energy Consumers Australia (ECA)
Microgrids are unlocking reliable, affordable renewable energy for remote populations.
A new study will scope the feasibility of producing renewable hydrogen in Gladstone for the Japanese market.
As ARENA launches a new investment plan, CEO Darren Miller speaks to our ReWired podcast to explain how renewables could soon shake up the heaviest of heavy industries.
