The Queensland Government has announced steps for the introduction of low-emission transport.

Minister for Energy, Renewables and Hydrogen Mick de Brenni said the continued investment in electronic vehicles will better prepare infrastructure for the future.

“With more than a thousand new EVs registered last year, we know more Queenslanders are now focused on the impact their vehicle has on our state’s carbon emissions,” de Brenni said.

Chargers for the electronic vehicles have recently been installed at Parliament House, by CS Energy.

“Queenslanders also expect government to lead by example, and that’s exactly what we have done with the installation of these 7kW AC chargers at the Parliamentary Annexel,” de Brenni continued.

Since 2018, the Queensland Government’s QFleet Electric Vehicle Transition Strategy has seen the number of electric vehicles double year on year.

Member for Logan Linus Power said the electronic vehicles will enable locals to reduce costs as well as their impact on the environment.

“The Sunshine State continues to lead the nation in rooftop solar, and by supporting EV uptake, we’re also helping soak up our excess solar generated by Queenslanders,” he said.
