Drive electric NSW Electric Vehicle Fast Charging Grants

The NSW Government is committed to achieving net zero emissions by 2050. Initiatives under the Net Zero Plan Stage One: 2020–2030 Drive electric NSW Electric Vehicle fast charging grants 5 (Net Zero Plan) will fast-track emissions reduction over the next decade. 

Reducing transport emissions is crucial to meeting our net zero target. The transport sector is currently the state’s second largest source of CO2 emissions. It is predicted to become the state’s leading source of emissions by 2035. The transport sector was responsible for 22% of all NSW emissions in 2018 and 87% of these emissions were from road transport. Almost 50% came from passenger vehicles. 

The Electric Vehicle Council’s Consumer Attitudes Survey (2021) found one of the biggest barriers to consumers purchasing plug-in electric vehicles (EVs) is range anxiety. Of the respondents, 92% said convenient fast public recharging would be the biggest encouragement to purchase a battery electric vehicles (BEV). More than two thirds of respondents listed providing the provision of public charging infrastructure as an important role for government.
