Tasmania is to install 14 fast-charging stations at 12 locations across the island State, located around 300 miles south of the Australian city of Melbourne.

“It is important government takes a leadership role in the use of low emissions vehicles and in this year’s budget we will begin to transition our fleet which currently has only around 3% in the low emissions category,” said Tasmania Premier, Peter Gutwein.

“I have requested Treasury to provide advice on an achievable, affordable but ambitious time-frame to transition us to a low emissions fleet. This will be announced in the lead up to the State budget.

“The Tasmanian government is committed to taking advantage of new technologies and is building the infrastructure of the future, enabling Tasmanians and visitors to take advantage of our clean and affordable energy.”
