Did you know?

ACT scored highest in the Electric Vehicle Council scorecard for Electric Vehicle incentives

ACT has the most ambitious emissions reduction target of any state or territory in Australia

ACT has declared a climate emergency and has been working for several years to achieve 100% renewable electricity in 2019

Achieving 100% renewable (zero emission) electricity leaves transport as the highest emitting sector in ACT.

There are more than a dozen different modes of electric mobility in Canberra and some have been used for decades.

The Zero Emissions Go Electric Project and the Zero Emissions EVenture are made possible with assistance from the ACT Government under the ACT Community Zero Emissions Grants Program

Invitees please RSVP to Warwick Cathro AEVA ACT Secretary - secretary@act.aeva.asn.au by COB 20 May 2021
