EVs will soon be mass-produced by major automakers. Widespread and rapid adoption of EVs in Australia has the potential for significant benefits including for the environment, economy and electricity system. However, maximizing these benefits, while mitigating any costs or risks, will require a comprehensive approach and leadership from all levels of government. This report is a review and analysis of barriers to widespread adoption of electric vehicles (EVs) and potential policy solutions. This report focuses on the current and future nature of technical and institutional barriers to adoption. An understanding of these barriers allows for more informed discussion of potential policy instruments that could be used to ensure a smooth and rapid transition of the current vehicle fleet to electric drive. Within these technical and institutional categories, a broad, but not exhaustive, list of potential policy options has been developed.
