Zero-emission vehicles

Home / Zero-emission vehicles
The South Australian government is working with major energy and automotive companies to capture the benefits of the transition to zero-emission vehicles and to overcome some of the barriers to efficient adoption.

With our focus on renewable energy development, a renowned education sector and a workforce with advanced skills in automotive and manufacturing, South Australia is an ideal research and development destination.

An increase in the uptake of zero-emission vehicles in South Australia could bring jobs and economic benefits to the State. The recent report “Recharging the Economy” provides information about the economic impact of zero-emission vehicles.

Other key drivers for moving toward zero-emission vehicles include the impact on reducing greenhouse gas emissions and wider implications for public health, rapid advances in enabling technologies such as batteries and fuel cells, and the risk of relying on petroleum for future energy supplies.
