Registrations of Interest are being sought from prospective site owners and tenants to host public electric vehicle charging services.

The South Australian Government is investing up to $13.4 million to leverage approximately $25 million of private investment in the statewide public charging network.

To lay the foundations, the South Australian Government is seeking Registrations of Interest from property owners and tenants interested in hosting electric vehicle chargers that will form part of the statewide network.

Potential sites include:

  • shopping centres, supermarkets and carparks
  • town centres
  • council-owned sites
  • public amenities
  • hotels, motels and holiday parks in metropolitan, regional and remote areas.

    How to apply

    Register your interest

    Proposals are now being sought from prospective charge point operators to develop a section or sections of South Australia’s EV Charging Network.

    If you have not yet registered your interest in hosting EV chargers, you will need to create an account and complete a Site Host Registration of Interest form on the SA EV Charging Network – DEM data room and site host portal before 30 August 2021.

    Once registered, one or more charge point operators may contact you to discuss their interest in your property. They may also seek in-principle agreement to nominate your property in their formal proposal to the Department to develop a section or sections of South Australia’s EV Charging Network.

    Information for potential site hosts

    In March the department held a series of online information sessions for property owners, tenants and businesses that registered their interest in hosting electric vehicle chargers as part of the Statewide EV Charging Network.

    Mark Borlace, Senior Manager, Future Mobility at the Royal Automobile Association (RAA) shared some of the RAA’s insights into consumer attitudes towards electric vehicles, and the uptake of electric vehicles globally.

    Peter Nattrass and Yvette Booth from the Department for Energy and Mining’s Growth and Low Carbon division spoke about what the network could mean for businesses, towns and regions in South Australia, and provided an overview of the next stages in the roll out of the project.
