The Federal Government has received more than 500 submissions on the National Electric Vehicle Strategy, representing more than 200 organisations.

Federal Minister for Energy Chris Bowen has thanked everyone who took the time to make a submission as the Government develops the National Electric Vehicle Strategy.

“Thank you to everyone who has taken the time to have your say. The Government will be working through these closely over coming weeks and months,” read one of Bowen’s tweets.

After passing the Climate Change Act, the first climate legislation in Australia in more than a decade, Australia is starting to signal to the global community that renewables and emission conscious technology is becoming a priority.

“The new government does believe that electric vehicles have a very important role to play in our transport system going forward, and we want to provide that framework, that encouragement for a much more rapid transition towards EVs,” Federal Minister for Energy, Chris Bowen said.

“You have elected us so that’s going to turn around. But, because we’re walking out onto the pitch late, our required run rate is much higher. To catch up with the rest of the world we have to do more and do it more quickly. And that’s what we’re all about. And that’s what you’re doing here today.”
