Present & Future: Electric Transport and its role in Reducing Emissions
The role of EVs in achieving Australia's Paris targets - new results from ClimateWorks analysis of 2C and 1.5C scenarios. Skarbek will discuss their work with local council fleet buyers which found that the total cost of ownership is competitive today - so no need to delay.
Global EV Trends and the Australian Story
The global pace of change and major EV drivers; the global EV Outlook; and the Australian EV story and the ramifications of a lack of policy.
A Forecasting Roadmap and Some Results
EVs are projected to impact our transportation and energy systems in the next 20 to 30 years. Potential EV adoption rates and charging behaviour both have significant implications for energy networks and energy markets. AEMO will share the plan it is developing, setting priorities for the datasets and modelling approach to improve the forecasting of EVs,

RETAILERS - HOW THEY WILL EMBRACE EV'S
Tapping into the Benefits of EV Ownership
EV charging should be convenient, cheap and clean, while helping solve other energy problems. Hear how AGL is working to make this vision a reality.
Who Should be Installing Chargers? And where?
What is the right model for expanding charging infrastructure? How do we ensure that the infrastructure is in the right places at the right time. Should it be publicly or privately owned? Should it be focussed on highways or built up areas? Shopping centres or commuter car parks? Fast or slow charging? Centrally planned or market led? One-way charging or bi-directional? And what is the role for local governments in driving the rollout of EV chargers?
Market Trends: Do Consumers really want EVs?
Everyone wants an EV! Or do they? What do EV shoppers in Australia really think of buying one, and what is it going to take to get EVs from niche to mass market?

Is Australia ready for Future Mobility?
Scott Nargar, Senior Manager of Future Mobility & Government Relations, Customer Experience, Hyundai
Preparing Australia for EVs, hydrogen and autonomous transport. Is Australia ready for Future Mobility and what do we need to do as a country to accelerate the transition?
Why EVs should be a major energy asset
With Intelligent Integration, electric vehicles can go beyond just providing transport. But can they go so far as to become an energy asset first and a mobility solution second?
Electric Vehicles, High-Power Charging, and Impacts on the Grid
James will discuss the future of charging, vehicle to grid, and interactions with homes, particularly in light of UK developments.
