Electric Vehicles Welcome in Queensland

Queensland Government Minister for Main Roads, Road Safety and Ports and Minister for Energy and Water Supply Hon Mark Bailey MP was about to leave for the Tesla factory in California when he very kindly accepted our invitation to provide the keynote address for the launch of the Zero Carbon Australia Electric Vehicles report hosted by the Global Change Institute at the University of Queensland.

With over 90% of Australian trips now known to be satisfied by even a modest battery electric vehicle, and with costs coming down, BZE argues, as do others, that all that is needed are some relatively minor transport policy adjustments to encourage more electric vehicles into car and bus fleets and into Australian driveways.
