To supply and support affordable and practical EV charging solutions powered by sustainable energy resources and use existing kerbside infrastructure.

 

1) ChargePost is committed to supporting the transport sector to reduce greenhouse emissions.

2) Ubiquitous and equitable kerbside EV charging infrastructure is essential to this support the transition.

3) ChargePost aims to educate and share on all things EV charging infrastructure related, including international trends.

Around the globe governments and businesses are striving to reduce greenhouse gas emissions to reach climate change reduction targets. In Australia the goals of attaining a 43% reduction in emissions by 2030 and net zero emissions by 2050 require new ways of living and working. The transport sector generates the largest share of greenhouse gas emissions of all sectors in Australia therefore electric vehicle (EV) adoption is critical for reducing these emissions.

 

Convenient access to charging facilities is needed to build confidence for drivers to switch to EVs and reach short and long-term emissions goals. While some EV owners can charge their vehicles at home or work, not all will have this option, including around 15% of inner-city residents. Travelling away from home or work charging facilities for extended periods also requires more public charging infrastructure. However, the cost and effort to build this infrastructure have been obstacles.

Fortunately, connecting EV chargers to existing kerbside infrastructure – including power poles, lampposts or existing bollards – is a practical, low-cost, and simple solution. Since 2019, our UK manufacturer – CityEV – has installed more than 25,000 chargers throughout the United Kingdom and Europe with outstanding results.

 

Utilising existing infrastructure significantly reduces the cost and complexity of installing EV chargers that are easily accessible.

 

ChargePost works closely with CityEV and builds on its success to introduce this simple and cost-effective EV charging solution to Australia. We offer complete EV charging solutions to local councils and other organisations – from initial planning and consultation to installation and ongoing support. Our EV chargers have been successfully installed in a number of commercial and private car parks throughout Melbourne, Victoria, and we are expanding rapidly.
