"Zero Emissions, Go Electric" Project

In 2020, AEVA ACT was awarded a grant of $24,940 to host a series of events (including an innovative Zero Emissions EVenture), supported by print and on-line material and media promotion, to promote the benefits of electrified transport.  This is known as the "Zero Emissions, Go Electric" Project.  It aims to overcome myths about EVs and personalise the rewards and benefits of owning and using electric vehicles, to individuals and the wider community.

To date, the following events have taken place:

  • a Project Launch on 24 May
  • two EV Experience Days at Ikea, on 9 May and 6 June 2021

The next events planned are:

  • an EV Experience Day near Questacon on 11 July 2021
  • a Pilot of the EVenture on 1 August 2021. 

Several more EV Experience Days are planned until early 2022.  The EVenture is planned to occur on 18 September 2021.  A Mini-Expo is planned for the last quarter of 2021.

The EV Experience days, the EVenture and the Mini-Expo will be complemented by online and prnted information materials, including Collector Cards for kids, which will form an interconnected and mutually reinforcing set of messages to the Canberra community about the importance of electrified transport in reducing emissions and helping to deliver a sustainable future.
