Recent branch meeting presentations:

Thanks to those who attended our branch meeting on Tuesday night - we're especially grateful for Michael Meyers from Tasmania who was travelling in WA for sharing his experience with the HOEM vehicle-to-load backup switch. Unfortunately the video was a bit difficult to broadcast online, but we'll make sure the details are added soon.

We're also thankful for James Elliot from Horizon Power who came to speak about the unique challenges of operating high powered DC chargers in very remote locations, as well as some of the innovative features being deployed within the Horizon network, particualrly EV connect.  A copy of James' presentation can be found here, while key technical requirements outlined by the network can be found here.  Also fantastic to see a key vehicle-to-grid trial being rolled out in the north of the state.

Synergy and Horizon Power have completed just over half of the WA EV Network charging locations around the state, wth some incredible useage data to back it up. The average regional charger is being used twice a day, with Kings Park in the city top of the pops with an average of 15 sessions per day. Sandra's presentation on the state of the WA EV Network can be found here.

How many EVs are there in WA? Well read this report from the Department of Transport and find out! Data up to December 2023 is listed.
