The State of Electric Vehicles in Australia report provides an up-to-date assessment of Australia’s electric vehicle industry. While electric vehicles currently only make up 0.1% of the Australian vehicle market, our analysis of electric vehicle uptake, policy and consumer attitudes shows that momentum is building.
ClimateWorks Australia Submission to the Review of Australia's climate change policies [PDF 1.36 MB]
ClimateWorks' submission to the review of Australia's climate change policies outline the importance of a target of net zero emissions by 2050. Our submission draws on engagement with key stakeholders, as well as our extensive research, which demonstrates we can reach net zero emissions while growing employment and our economy. The submission also makes the case that while delay and policy uncertainty will increase costs, a net zero by 2050 target, as part of a long-term plan, enables an effective transition.
Towards Fuel Efficient, Lower Emission Light Vehicles: Submission to the Vehicle Emissions Discussion Paper [PDF 6.24 MB]
The transport sector is one of the fastest growing sources of emissions within Australia, increasing by 47.5% since 1990, however it also represents one of the most financially attractive emission reduction opportunities across the Australian economy. ClimateWorks and Future Climate Australia have identified that best practice light vehicle CO2 emission standards can reduce emissions from light vehicles by about 100 million tonnes between 2020 to 2030 - close to 10% of the Federal Government’s emissions reduction target over that period.
The Path Forward for Electric Vehicles in Australia - Joint Submission to the Federal Government Vehicle Emissions Discussion Paper [PDF 1.63 MB]
A broad coalition of representatives from Australia’s emerging electric vehicle market including TransGrid, AGL, Tesla, Ergon and Renault (convened by ClimateWorks) is calling on the Federal Government to support a nationally co-ordinated approach to support the move from petrol and diesel, to electric cars.
On 1 December 2015, ClimateWorks released an Issues Paper considering a range of complementary measures that could be implemented in support of light vehicle CO2 emission standards, to help drive improvement in fuel economy across Australia’s light vehicle fleet. Input from consultation with industry, government and consumers (in collaboration with Future Climate Australia and the Global Fuel Economy) has been consolidated into this summary report.
ClimateWorks has identified clear improvement opportunities for fuel efficiency of the Victorian Government’s passenger vehicle fleet. This report provides an overview of the current fuel efficiency of the Victorian Government’s passenger vehicle fleet and considers a range of potential short and long term options to overcome key barriers to achieve improvements.
