Who Should be Installing Chargers? And where?

Scott Dwyer, Research Principal, Institute for Sustainable Futures, University of Technology Sydney

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?

Alina Dini, Industry Fellow, Institute for Future Environments, Queensland University of Technology

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?
