AEVA submission to Energy White Paper "Issues Paper"
In December 2013 the Australian federal government released an issues paper, calling for submissions to help guide policy in the energy sector.
The Energy White Paper 'Issues Paper' can be found here: http://ewp.industry.gov.au/documents/issues-paper
There were several issues raised in the paper which the AEVA felt comment was warranted, particularly around energy security, incentives for increasing renewable and low-emissions generating capacity, the workings of electricity markets and alternative energy technologies. In particular, the last paragraph of the document specifically sought comment on barriers to the widespread adoption of electric vehicles. The AEVA is pleased to see EVs on the government's agenda!
A submission was made by the AEVA and it can be found here
Update - unfortunately the previous submission was an early draft. The correct one is up now.
