National Electric Vehicle Strategy
Productivity Commission submission
The Productivity Commission made a submission to the National Electric Vehicle Strategy (NEVS) consultation process. The Commission anticipates that electric vehicles (EVs) will make an important contribution to Australia’s decarbonisation, by leveraging the decarbonisation of our electricity grid to reduce Australia’s consumption of liquid fossil fuels.
EV uptake might also reinforce the decarbonisation of the electricity grid by providing for a growing stock of second-hand EV batteries that could be reused for grid firming. However, making the most of this transition will require thoughtful policy settings, and unnecessarily expensive policy options should be avoided.
The submission was submitted to the NEVS consultation process on 31 October 2022. It was published on the Commission's website on 21 November 2022.
