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 has received 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.
Information for 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.
