ITE-ANZ Webinar: New Vehicle Efficiency Standard

When:  Jul 31, 2024 from 16:30 to 17:30 (ET)

The Australian government's New Vehicle Efficiency Standard will come into effect on 1 January 2025.  It will have a significant effect on the take up of electric, hybrid and other low emission light vehicles.  Our three eminent speakers will explain how the scheme will work and dispel some of the misinformation that found its way into the discussion when the legislation was being prepared.  We will also hear about the impacts on the transport profession - particularly the expansion of EV charging infrastructure.

This webinar is hosted jointly by ITE-ANZ and the Transport Australia society.
