Cars are responsible for half of all transport emissions in Australia. So, switching to an electric vehicle (EV) sounds like it would be great for the planet, but how viable is it in Australia in terms of cost, availability and things like re-charging?
To provide some answers to these and other questions, the Uniting Climate and Action Network has organised a free online Electric Vehicle Forum. Dr Jake Whitehead, the Head of Policy at the Electric Vehicle Council of Australia, will be the main speaker, explaining the benefits of EVs, how they work, their current availability in Australia, and various factors that affect their cost and public demand for them.
The Electric Vehicle Forum is part of the Living the Change series of information seminars developed for the Synod Climate Action Strategy. Living the Change focuses on ways that individuals and households can reduce their own greenhouse gas footprint as part of care for creation.
The Electric Vehicle Forum will take place online via Zoom on Wednesday,
7 September, from
7pm – 8.30pm.
