Consultation open on Victorian Gov Zero Emissions Vehicle Roadmap

In preparation for an uptake in zero emissions vehicles, consultation is now open on the Victorian Government’s Zero Emissions Vehicle Roadmap.

The plan will aim to set out the infrastructure and support needed to get more zero emissions vehicles on roads.

The government has also launched a new map of locations for existing and proposed charging stations across the state. There are currently 403 vehicle charging stations with 31 more planned for construction.

The map will help to raise awareness for the large network of charging stations across the state.

Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change Lily D’Ambrosio said the government is delivering a clear plan to make sure there are more zero emissions vehicles on the road.

“We’re supporting new charging stations across the state so Victorians to have confidence that they can take their zero emissions vehicles right around Victoria,” Ms. D’Ambrosio said.

“Uptake of zero emissions vehicles will help us reduce emissions and tackle climate change.”

The latest charging station to be installed in Moe opened earlier this month. It is an ultra-rapid station, one of seven supported by $3 million in government funding.

The Moe charging site is also solar powered. It can charge electric vehicles simultaneously delivering 400 kilometres of range in around 15 minutes.

The uptake in zero emissions vehicles will help to reduce emissions to improve air quality and support the state government’s goal of net zero emissions by 2050 to fight climate change.

The Zero Emissions Vehicle Roadmap will be released this year.
