Is an EV right for me?

May 25, 2022 @ 6:00 pm - 7:30 pm

Interested in EVs but don’t know where to start? This free webinar will discuss the ins and outs of getting an EV.

It wasn’t long ago that the concept of electric vehicles (EVs) was a novelty, the vehicle for entrepreneurs, technocrats and those with higher-than-average disposable incomes. The fact is, not only is the future of the EV here, but the barriers that once existed to its mass adoption have mostly been addressed. Those barriers that still remain are rapidly diminishing: cost is being driven down by supply and demand, policies are in place to drastically decarbonise, battery innovation is exponential and governments all over the world are committing to EV roll-outs and largescale investment on charging infrastructure.

If you want to know what to consider before purchasing an EV, join this information session to help you understand:

  • types of chargers for EVs and charging times
  • how capable current models are at managing travel distances needed in Australia
  • new infrastructure and what this means for NSW EV adoption
  • batteries: longevity, life-cycle and replacement
  • how much electricity EVs will require and how the grid will support them
  • key considerations before purchasing a EV, what to look for, what rebates are available and what the market is like in Australia
  • when does it make sense to buy an EV and is it right for you?

This free webinar is brought to you by Inner West Council and the Australian Energy Foundation (AEF).

The presenter is Andrew Reddaway, a Senior Consultant with AEF, who has previously worked at Renew and the Australian Energy Market Operator. His projects have included detailed economic modelling of solar systems and efficient electric appliances. Andrew advises households on sustainability and has authored a series of discussion papers on the energy transition.
