Summary

Chargefox will deliver 16 fast charging stations across Adelaide and Perth.

Need

The Australian EV industry is in the early stages of development. In cities and regional centres, charging blackspots (i.e. areas without convenient access to public fast-charging stations) have been identified as a key barrier to the adoption of EVs for both the public and fleets. This project will increase the availability of public fast charging infrastructure to reduce blackspots and provide convenient recharging options for EV owners.

Action

Chargefox will install a network of public fast charging stations in Adelaide and Perth. Each station will provide at least two designated EV charging parking spots and will have a capacity of at least 100 kW.

Outcome

This project aims to:

  1. address barriers to the adoption of EVs by increasing the number of public fast charging stations
  2. reduce emissions by ensuring all sites are powered by renewable energy
  3. improve understanding of how consumers use public fast charging stations.
