Overview

  • Business
  • Closed

The EVCBF program is now closed. Applications have been assessed, providing:

  • grants to 14 Victorian organisations
  • $1.55 million in grant funding awarded
  • planned installation of 58 electric vehicle private charging stations at 24 sites across Victoria by September 2023.

Objectives

By working with businesses, the program supported projects that:

  • support the transition of business fleets to EVs
  • implement EV charging technology at business locations
  • support business leadership in the transition to EVs, removing a large barrier to EV adoption
  • create project supply chain and local jobs, for example, skills, capabilities and services across each service area
  • deliver community, economic and social benefit
  • support smart charging infrastructure technology manufacturing, installation and maintenance opportunities within the State
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions to support Victoria’s legislated net-zero by 2045 emissions reduction target and the business’s own targets and strategies
  • help stimulate a second-hand EV market at the end of vehicle lease (if applicable).

Funding outcomes

Approximately $1.55 million has been awarded to successful EVCBF projects. This includes over $727,000 in grant funding allocated across regional Victoria and over $827,000 across metropolitan Melbourne.

The EVCBF charger sizes range from 7 kilowatts – 60 kilowatts depending on the fleet characteristics, including demonstration of need, location, size of fleet, frequency of use and commitment to an EV transition plan.
