Electric Vehicles Infrastructure Investment Consultation

Consultation has concluded

Consultation closes Friday 20 March 2020.

Project Overview

Have your say on council investing in electric vehicle (EV) charging stations across the City of Clarence.

We would like to hear your thoughts on council partnering with businesses in Clarence to share costs and provide EV charging stations for community use. If you are in favour of this, we would also like to know where you think these stations should be located across the city.


Background

In alignment with our Strategic Plan 2016-2026, we are committed to encouraging energy conservation opportunities in relation to emerging and alternative technologies.

The use of zero emission electric vehicles instead of internal combustion engine vehicles can significantly reduce transport carbon emissions, thereby lessening the consequent impacts on climate change and health risks associated with air pollution.

The popularity of EVs is rapidly growing in the large consumer markets in Europe, Asia and North America. This is being led by vehicle manufacturers who have invested heavily to expand their EV offerings and improve the EV driving range and performance.

We recognise the increasing availability of EVs and acknowledge that a key factor hindering consumer uptake of EVs in Australia is the lack of recharging infrastructure.


Have Your Say

Have your say by:

  • Completing our quick poll to indicate if you are for or against council partnering with businesses to provide EV charging stations across the city.
  • Letting us know any ideas or concerns we need to consider by leaving a comment on our issues log book.
  • Marking on our map where EV charging stations should be placed across the city.
