Our latest White Paper exploring low emission vehicles has been released.
Our latest White Paper exploring low emission vehicles has been released. The paper is the first of a two-part series looking into the types of low emission vehicles currently on offer within the Australian market and identifies which represents the lowest cost emission option in the most feasible manner.
Part 1 focuses on electric and hybrid vehicles while Part 2, to be released in quarter 2 will discuss hydrogen vehicles.
Paper 1 explores:
- How green are battery electric vehicles (BEV)
- The types of battery electric vehicles available
- The current challenges of charging a BEV in the Australian landscape
- The need for BEV charging infrastructure within existing service stations
- Hybrid electric vehicles
The paper also discusses the fact that battery electric vehicles can add significant electrical load to the grid requiring external grid and network upgrades and who will pay.
The report provides important considerations for future service centre construction, which will be necessary for accommodating the changing fuel industry landscape in Australia.
TfA Project Group has kept a strong presence in the retail fuel and convenience industry over the past 25 years. For service stations approvals, we thought it was timely to provide a 15 year retrospective, summarising where some of the key trends have evolved. This in turn aids in looking forward as to what future trends and / or issues may look like.
