More car owners are buying electric vehicles due to rising petrol costs. Andrew Reddaway from Australian Energy Foundation will share advice on EV ownership in a free webinar on 15 June.
EV car ownership in Knox increased by 195% between 2015 and 2020. In 2020, a total of 118 EV cars were registered in Knox. The increase in EV ownership in our community is expected to continue.
We are supporting our community’s transition to lower emission transport options by expanding our EV charging network and providing educational workshops to assist.
Buying a new car is an important decision for households. This webinar will help car owners understand what it means to own an EV.
Topics covered in the webinar include:
- how an EV compares to a petrol-based car (i.e. price, running costs, travel range, and longevity)
- how and where to charge an EV
- setting up your home for an EV
- EV emissions compared to other modes of transport
- rebates available when buying an EV
- future trends in the EV market
This initiative is supported by our Climate Response Plan 2021-2031, which aims to reduce greenhouse emissions in our community to net zero by 2040.
We are proactively reducing our car fleet emissions, which contribute to around 9% of our emissions profile. Our plan is to transition our passenger pool vehicles to all EVs by 2025. Learn more about our climate actions on our Energy efficiency and greenhouse emissions web page.
