The transport sector is responsible for about one fifth of Australia’s emissions. The majority of these (84%) come from vehicles on the road, moving people, goods and services. EVs are essential in getting to zero emissions and we can get there faster if we increase our public and active transport use. These changes have the added benefits of reducing congestion and improving air quality, leading to better health.
EVs can be thought of as batteries on wheels. In homes with solar, they can be charged and used to store excess energy during peak periods of sunshine. They can even be used to help power homes.
Our Hunter Energy Evolution video series shines the spotlight on how one of the players in Australia's transport sector is accelerating the evolution towards a cleaner, more prosperous future.
These innovations are ready right now to play their part in Australia’s transition to zero emissions.
We have the cleantech ready to scale up so that we can speed up deployment to accelerate Australia towards a zero-emissions economy.
The Cleantech Showcase lists examples of projects that are capable of propelling us towards a prosperous, zero emissions Australia.
This list is not exhaustive and many more comparable projects may exist.
