The ACT story: from 100% renewable electricity to 100% decarbonised transport
The ACT has led the transition to renewable energy and is on track for 100% renewable electricity by 2020. It is now turning its attention to decarbonising other sectors, to meet its target of net zero emissions by 2045. Transport is one of the biggest challenges.

Can we trust EV forecasts?
What makes a good EV forecast? Why do we choose the methods we choose? What are the key forecast drivers, and what segments are important to focus on to manage forecast uncertainty (especially the interplay between vehicle class and size and their technology platform)?
Financing the Transition in e-Mobility
Using finance as a tool to help accelerate Australia’s EV transition, which car buyer group will have the biggest impact on overcoming the barriers to EV uptake in Australia. Is it the consumers? Is it the fleets?
Bringing EVs to market
Ian will explore ARENA's journey in electric vehicles to date, from understanding the market, including barriers and data gaps, addressing the information deficit in the market and ARENA's project investments addressing real or perceived barriers. Ian will present ARENA's future interests in distributed energy and in particular electric vehicles.

NETWORKS OPTIMISING THE GRID
How EVs fit into the future grid
The electrification of transport is not a question of if, but when. And for networks, it’s also a question of how. Peak demand drives network investment, and the adoption of EV’s will be a significant factor in peak demands in the near future. In planning the Future Grid what risks and opportunities will EV’s present, and how will we plan transmission networks to reduce the impacts, and leverage the benefits.
When do Consumers want to charge?
Initial data shows consumers super-charge when the sun is out. What does this mean for the grid?
Connecting EVs to the Grid Fairly and Efficiently
The growth of EVs connected to our distribution grids, and the corresponding technology innovations that will allow electricity grids to support domestic and fast charging infrastructure in the fairest and most efficient ways.

CHARGING INTO THE FUTURE
Reshaping the Value of Vehicles: Cars as Energy
Tim Washington aims to raise doubts on two firmly held visions of the future: the decline of private vehicle ownership and the inevitable rise of domestic stationary storage, by examining how "managed EV charging" and "vehicle to grid" changes a car's fundamental value proposition.
Super-Fast Charging with Solar Batteries and Software
A quick overview of charging fundamentals, technology and where public charging in Australia is today. Followed by a deeper dive into the challenges of building very high-power charging sites and some of the technical solutions we are applying. This includes on-site solar, batteries and software control, as demonstrated at our site in Euroa, Victoria.
Managing Charging for Different Uses
The market will quickly become fragmented and decentralised and a variety of providers will enter the 'Charging as a Service' market. Carola will talk about various use cases in public, commercial and private charging and the different use cases by customer groups.
