A new way for businesses to access EV charging is set to roll out nationally, with support from the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).
Melbourne-based EV charging company JET Charge has launched its $24.9 million ‘Charging as a Service’ (CaaS) project. JET Charge will install and maintain EV chargers at the customer’s site. Fleet operators will pay JET Charge a subscription fee for the ongoing service.
ARENA is providing $12 million from the Driving the Nation Fund to support the delivery of the project.
The project is set to run for 3 years and will see the uptake of more than 3,100 new EVs with charging infrastructure.
ARENA CEO Darren Miller said the project is an exciting opportunity that will make EV charging more accessible to businesses and their fleets.
‘We know that access to charging infrastructure is a barrier for fleet users looking to switch to EVs, so it’s exciting to see JET Charge developing a new way to make charging more accessible,’ Mr Miller said.
