Qld Govt launches EV Charging Infrastructure Co-fund Scheme

On 1 July 2022, the Queensland Government announced the launch of the Queensland Electric Vehicle Charging Infrastructure Co-fund (the Scheme), delivering a $10 million program to further support public charging options, in partnership with local government and private industry.

The Scheme will provide up to $3 million and maximum of 50 per cent of total project costs, in co-funding for eligible applicants to deliver public fast-charging infrastructure across several priority zones in Queensland.

The co-funding model will further accelerate private investment in EV infrastructure in Queensland by turning the $10 million Government investment into at least $20 million investment in charging infrastructure when including Local Council and Industry contributions.

Local Councils and Industry are invited to submit an expression of interest by COB 29 August 2022.

The Scheme supports implementation of Queensland’s Zero Emission Vehicle Strategy 2022-2032 (ZEV Strategy) and its first action plan.

This strategy is an important part of preparing Queensland for future opportunities as we transition to zero net emissions by 2050. It sets the path for a cleaner, greener transport future, while making sure our energy network can support the transition to zero emission vehicles.

The Scheme addresses Priority 3: Facilitating supportive ZEV infrastructure in the ZEV Strategy, through co-funding public electric vehicle charging stations.
