Future fuels funding to support over 400 new electric vehicle charging stations
The Future Fuels Fund is expanding Australia’s fast charging network to help remove barriers to electric vehicle (EV) uptake.
The first round of the fund is investing $24.55 million in new fast charging stations around Australia. Five companies will build a total of 403 stations, all powered by renewable energy.
This funding will support stations in all capital cities and selected regional centres, including:
- Sunshine Coast.
These regions will see a sevenfold increase in public charging stations. Later rounds of the fund will continue to increase regional EV charging capacity.
These investments are central to the Australian Government’s development of a Future Fuels Strategy to enable choice for consumers across all types of future fuels. We will release the strategy in late 2021.
