With four ultra-rapid stations now operational along the east coast, and an additional 18 in development around Australia, the Chargefox public network will soon connect Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne, Adelaide and Cairns. Additional sites in Western Australia and Tasmania will be also be live before the end of 2019. All 22 ultra-rapid sites are backed by renewable energy, with solar panels and batteries on site to facilitate charging via solar energy wherever possible.”

“Our aim is to make EV charging as fast and easy as possible for all Australians, and we’re excited to be leading the way in delivering state-of-the-art infrastructure backed by renewable energy, like at this site. We’re transforming Australia from a global laggard to a leader in transport innovation, and part of this is future proofing our technology and infrastructure for many years to come.

This year has already been a milestone year for Chargefox. We have four ultra- rapid stations open along the East Coast, all backed by renewable energy. We’re working closely with car manufacturers to build technology that benefits their drivers, and we’ve partnered with the Queensland government to manage and incorporate the Queensland Electric Super Highway into the Chargefox network.”
