Electric vehicle charging network to connect all of Australia

Australians will be able to charge their Electric Vehicles (EVs) in more locations in rural and regional Australia, with the Albanese Government partnering with the NRMA to build 117 fast EV charging sites on national highways across the country.

In partnership with NRMA and as part of the Driving the Nation fund, the Albanese Government will deliver $39.3 million dollars in funding to build 117 fast EV charging sites to better connect towns and cities and will ensure there is a fast charger approximately every 150km on national highways.

Today the national map of charging sites was unveiled highlighting new sites to be delivered, including regional and remote areas in every state and territory.

EVs are cleaner and cheaper to run, but for too long, range anxiety has been one of the biggest hurdles for Australians when considering whether or not to buy an EV.

Minister for Climate Change and Energy Chris Bowen said the Government was working to improve EV infrastructure by establishing a nation-wide network of fast chargers.

“EVs aren’t just for the cities, and Australians who drive long distances either for work or for holidays should be able to reap the benefits of cars that are cheaper and cleaner to run,” he said.

“We’re making range anxiety a thing of the past. This project will help close the gaps and known black spots in the network and make it possible to drive from Darwin to Perth, Broken Hill to Adelaide, and from Brisbane to Tennant Creek in the NT.”

“This national rollout will help put more Australians in the driver’s seat of cheaper and cleaner cars,” Minister Bowen said.

Note: NRMA will work in consultation with LGAs and communities on final locations.
