Today, Tuesday 24 May 2022, the Minister for Energy, Environment and Climate Change, Lily D’Ambrosio, launched the EV Charging for Business Fleets (EVCBF) Program as part of the Acceleration of Zero Emissions Vehicles Adoption (AZEVA) Program. Please note, this program’s Application Guidelines, including eligibility, have been updated from the previously announced EVCBF Program launched in December 2021 to provide increased flexibility and enable participation from a broader range of organisations.
This funding will support business fleets transition to electric vehicles (EVs), removing a large barrier to EV adoption by ensuring EV fleets can be charged up when at the place of business. Increased EV fleet uptake by businesses will also help to reduce their emissions, supporting local emissions reduction targets, and stimulate the second-hand EV market at end-of-vehicle lease or ownership. An information session will be held for EVCBF to outline the relevant program requirements and to address any questions you may have.
Please see details below:
EVCBF will provide $1.5 million in grant funding to assist Victorian businesses to install EV charging stations at business premises.
The Department of Environment, Land, Water and Planning invites you to an information session, which will provide an overview of the EVCBF Program, outline the program eligibility requirements and timelines, as well as allow the opportunity for you to ask questions.
Information Session Details:
For those unable to attend, the information session presentation will be made available on the EVCBF Program website and the Frequently Asked Questions will also be updated to reflect questions that are asked during the session.
Date: Thursday 2 June 2022
Time: 3.45pm to 4.30pm
