Electric VehicleLow emission transport in New Zealand will receive a record boost totalling more than $11 million.

“From 100% electric campervans for tourists to hydrogen fuel cell powered buses at the Ports of Auckland to solar panel charged electric vehicles and trial of smart chargers in people’s homes, we’re backing new technologies that will make a difference”, Energy and Resources Minister Megan Woods said.

“We’re also funding a further 34 new public charging spaces for electric vehicles right around New Zealand, including several at South Island tourism hot-spots.

“In total, the fund has committed $17.2 million in government funding to 93 projects. This is matched by over $45 million applicant funding.

“Transport is responsible for about 18% of New Zealand’s total greenhouse gas emissions, so one of the most effective ways for us to help tackle climate change is to transition our fossil-fuelled transport fleet to run on clean, renewable energy sources.”
