Who can see your viewing activity?
Hello everyone, Mary Hendriks from the traditional land of the Gadigal people of the Eora nation
Hi from Narrm/Melbourne
Hi Caroline, because we're using zoom webinar you can only see video of the panellists today.
What a good question alina.. love it.
@ Tonia - can you talk to the policy signals being introduced in the US to incentivize equitable access to charging infrastructure.
Kirston, how long do fleets in NZ hang onto vehicles?
Hi everyone - super interesting discussion and great questions Alina! My question is related to the chicken and egg situation with chargers and vehicles - I'm seeing a lot of charger roll outs and charging grants across Australia from across state government, local councils and private organisations, but EV uptake is still quite low. Do you think we're jumping the gun a little bit given how quickly EV and EV charging technology is changing and evolving (and risk stranded charging assets) - or do you think chargers need to come first and EV uptake will follow?
Ive written about SEAElecgtric which has just moved to the US to build its trucks there
I have some breaking news on EVs!
Kia Ora! One for EVC - great to see AU Federal Government supporting public DC infrastructure with future fuel fund. Do you think we will next see support for AC infrastructure where there are limitations around DC deployment in dense urban areas when Multi-unit dwellings dominate?
Hot off the press...(just announced in the last 10 mins)
A new Emissions Reduction Fund method for the transport sector including for EV charging
Great to see this as an all women panel - great initiative, so going electric is not just the domain of the blokes !!
Also EV chargers aren’t exactly visible, like a giant petrol station. They sit in car parks of shopping centres or golf resorts and no-one really nieces them unless they need them
Watch and learn buddy!
There is a huge advantage particularly for parents esp of young children - to not having to take the time to drive to a petrol station, and not having to reach into your wallet every week/time, while avoiding the fumes and emissions
Don’t women greatly influence the purchase of a vehicle
Great discussion - thanks !!
Thank you everyone. It's so wonderful to know that the conversations are happening. I've had an EV for over 18 months and have converted a lot of people - as mentioned by Chau, as soon as 'rev heads' feel the torque, they're in. Let me know how everyday EV owners can help promote EVs.
Great initiative. Thanks you for organising.
Great discussion - thank you!
