34 fast chargers are set to become part of the national EV infrastructure with Ampol’s AmpCharge EV charging stations to be established across locations in Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia.
The move comes after a successful test project in Brisbane and builds on the Palaszczuk Government’s Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan.
Ampol aims to build a national electric vehicle charging network to reduce range anxiety and support the uptake of EVs across Australia.
“In 2022 we launched our first AmpCharge site in Queensland at Carseldine and this partnership with Yurika continues momentum on our ongoing rollout,” Ampol Group Chief Financial Officer, Greg Barnes said.
“We are pleased to continue to work as a partner of the Queensland Government as we continue to execute our strategy for energy transition.”
The Queensland government continues to support and push for the uptake of EVs and the development of its infrastructure.
“Innovations in electric vehicle performance and lifecycle costs have meant more Queenslanders are choosing to make the switch, with over 16,000 electric vehicles now on our roads,” Queensland’s Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen, Mick de Brenni said.
“This first order is for design, construction and commissioning services for EV chargers and solar systems across an initial number of service station sites located across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria and Western Australia.
“Through the Queensland Energy and Jobs Plan, we can capture so much more of Queensland’s abundance of natural sun, wind and water to power the industries, the homes, and the transport fleets of tomorrow.”
