Overview

  • Government
  • Closed

The Electric Vehicle Charging Council Fleets (VCCF) program is now closed. Applications have been assessed, providing:

  • grants to 26 Victorian Councils
  • $1.25 million in grant funding awarded
  • the planned installation of approximately 120 electric vehicle private charging stations within approximately 57 council sites across Victoria.

Objectives

By working with local government, the program supports projects that:

  • transition local council fleets to EVs
  • implement EV charging technology at local council offices and depots
  • support local government leadership in the transition to EVs, removing a large barrier to EV adoption
  • help stimulate a second-hand EV market at end-of-vehicle lease (if applicable)
  • create project supply chain and local jobs, for example, skills, capabilities and services across each service area
  • support smart charging infrastructure technology manufacturing, installation and maintenance opportunities within the State
  • deliver community benefit - both economic and social
  • reduce greenhouse gas emissions in line with the Victorian Government’s net-zero transition target and the local council’s own

Funded projects

Approximately $1.25 million has been awarded to successful EVCCF projects. This includes over $647,000 in grant funding allocated across regional Victoria and over $598,000 across metropolitan Melbourne.

The EVCCF charger sizes range from 7 kilowatts – 50 kilowatts depending on the fleet characteristics, including demonstration of need, location, size of the fleet, frequency of use and commitment to an EV transition plan.
