It’s great to see Wyndham City Council’s draft Electric Vehicle Policy that envisions comprehensive support from a local government level to accelerate the transition to zero emissions transport. It’s very encouraging to see the council’s leadership and initiative to bring all stakeholders in this transition to the future of transportation. The policy expands beyond public charging infrastructure and extends to support for setting up charging infrastructure at home, which is an excellent step towards energy independence for all households when combined with the renewable energy supply. Including active transport and shared mobility options is essential to offer flexible transport options to the community.
