Increasing electric vehicle uptake

Electric vehicle charging stations will be installed in central Geelong.

We've been investigating the installation of electric vehicle charging stations within Central Geelong, through one of its major projects, Cleantech Innovations Geelong.

We know that electric vehicle uptake is directly related to perceptions about the range of distances the vehicles can travel, and perceptions about proximity to charging stations. Cleantech Innovations Geelong and the City of Greater Geelong are working on changing those perceptions.

Two electric vehicle charging stations will be installed on the Cunningham Pier forecourt, on Western Foreshore Road, Geelong. The charging stations will be able to charge fours vehicles at a time.

Cleantech Innovations Geelong has been set up to support the market development of cleantech goods and services. The project seeks to develop business opportunities and create jobs in Geelong.

Cleantech Innovations Geelong is a collaboration between the Geelong Manufacturing Council, Future Proofing Geelong and the State Government.
