ENGIE, working with project partners ISimply Energy, JET Charge Pty Ltd, and its site partners will deliver 103 fast charging stations across 4 regions in Australia.
The Australian electric vehicle (EV) industry is in the early stages of development. In cities and regional centres, charging blackspots (areas that do not have convenient access to public fast-charging stations) are an issue. Expanding the charging network will reduce barriers to uptake and support the growing number of Australian businesses and individuals that want to purchase an EV.
This ENGIE Future Fuels Public Fast Charging project will increase the availability of public fast-charging infrastructure to reduce blackspots and provide convenient recharging options for Australians, which will support EV uptake by the public and businesses, including fleets.
ENGIE will install a network of public fast-charging stations in 4 regions in Australia. Each station will provide at least two designated parking spots for EV charging and will have a capacity of at least 100 kW.
This project aims to:
- address barriers to the adoption of EVs by increasing the number of public fast charging stations
- reduce emissions by ensuring all sites are powered by renewable energy
- improve understanding of how consumers use public fast charging stations.
