Australian Electric Vehicle Association

In recent years the ACT Branch has advocated for EV-friendly policies in the ACT, and has contributed to AEVA advocacy at the national level. This page serves as an archive for work done in this area in previous years.


In 2021 the Branch took a leading role in preparing this AEVA submission to the review of the National Construction Code (NCC). A presentation on this activity, including the successful outcome of the NCC review, may be viewed here


In 2020 the Branch lodged this submission to an inquiry by EVenergi concerning initiatives to drive the transition to zero carbon transportation in the ACT.

The Branch is a member of the Conservation Council ACT Region.  During 2020 it worked with other member groups to develop policy recommendations for the ACT election, including the "Sustainable transport" recommendations on page 9 of "Our environment, our future".  The Branch will undertake a similar collaboration in the context of the 2024 ACT election.  


In mid-2018 the Branch lodged this submission to the Senate Inquiry into Electric Vehicles.  A reflection on the Senate Inquiry can be found in this article.

Between mid 2018 and early 2020, the Branch fostered a Working Group on EV Policy and Advocacy. The final report of that Working Group may be found here.  One of its important outcomes was this set of recommendations on EV charging in new strata dedvelopments.
