The number of electric vehicles (EVs) on Australian roads is increasing rapidly, and with it, the need for improved charging infrastructure. In recent years, there have been a number of improvements to EV charging infrastructure in Australia.
Public charging infrastructure in Australia is growing rapidly, chiefly led by a few key EV charging providers, but I’ve noticed one more than others are releasing new locations every few days.
Evie Networks continues to expand their network of chargers and while they may currently be behind Tesla and Chargefox in terms of total charging locations, I’m not sure it’ll stay that way for long.
These improvements to EV charging infrastructure are helping to address one of the key barriers to EV adoption in Australia, which is range anxiety. By making EV charging infrastructure readily available, it gives potential EV owners comfort and confidence that they’ll be able to travel where they want, charge and return home without issue.
Below are just some of the most recent additions to the Evie Networks charging locations, spanning much of the east coast, ranging from Queensland to New South Wales and Victoria.
Something Evie Networks does really well is the clearly labelled, blue-painted charging bays. These not only clearly indicate to EV owners where they can charge, while letting the rest of the general public they should steer clear of these dedicated EV parks.
Not only are they well-marked, but Evie locations tend to be in convenient locations, much better than those charging options in poorly lit, behind warehouse kind of charging options available by others.
Evie recently announced that they had provided charging to allow as much as 24 million kilometres of zero-emission driving.
