Venture Insights hosted a webinar with leading city planning experts Nic Frances Gilley (Councillor, Chair of the Transport Portfolio, City of Melbourne), Deb Cailes (Acting Director, City Strategy and Place, City of Melbourne) and electric vehicle expert Johan Karlsson (Head of New Technology, DC Power Co) to discuss the future of electric vehicles in Australia. The topic for discussion was “Do electric vehicles (EVs) change everything, and by when?”.
Certainly, the view from the guest speakers and Venture Insights is that there will be an aggressive adoption of Electric Vehicles in Australia. In a world focusing on climate change and emission reduction, renewables will be the main source of energy in the future.
