Most people in Australia wouldn’t believe that the country was ready to transition to zero-emission vehicles until recently. Any discussion of the topic would evoke the usual dismissive objections: Inadequate charging infrastructure, limited Government policies, range anxiety, long charging time, and many more.
However, the recent climate crisis leading to bushfires, frequent floods, and energy crises have been enough to make even non-believers rethink their arguments against the need for a shift in priorities.
Going green is no more an option but a necessity. With state and federal Governments enshrining in legislation Australia’s target of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050 and committing investment certainty needed to decarbonise the economy, the discourse around all forms of green transport has changed seismically.
There is now more confidence in the future of transport going electric with new players entering the market, bringing more investment in the technology and the infrastructure required to make the clean energy transition easy and affordable.
