|The barriers and potential enablers of electric vehicle uptake in Australia||541.6 KB|
Electric vehicles (EVs) will play an important role in the transition to net zero, both by reducing emissions in the transport sector and by complementing other household activities, such as rooftop solar. They can also facilitate households to participate in demand response and other energy market responses that leverage residential-level distributed energy resources.
The Consumer Policy Research Centre recently undertook a nationally-representative survey of 2000 Australians. The purpose of this was to better understand the barriers and enablers for Australians to switch from internal combustion engine (ICE) to electric vehicles (EVs). This paper outlines the research findings.
