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 2023, the ACT Branch was invited to join the Evoenergy energy consumer reference council.

In May 2023, the ACT Branch made a significant contribution to the development of AEVA's national submission on fuel efficiency standards to the Department of Infrastructure, Transport, Regional Development, Communications and the Arts.

Also in May 2023, the Branch issued its recommendations for public EV charging infrastructure in the ACT. This document replaced earlier versions issued in 2021 and 2022, and included recommendations to support the needs of drivers with disabilities.


The Branch lodged this submission to an Inquiry into EV uptake by a committee of the ACT Legislative Assembly.

The Branch also made a strong contribution to the AEVA National submission on the National EV Strategy.


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.
