AIE SA LUNCH & LEARN SERIES – SESSION ONE – RECHARGING THE ECONOMY: THE ECONOMIC IMPACT OF ACCELERATING ELECTRIC VEHICLE ADOPTION

MARK THOMSON, PARTNER, PwC

According to a new study conducted by PwC, an uptake of electric cars in Australia similar to the rate seen in Norway would provide a $2.9 billion injection for the economy by 2030 and lift net employment by 13,400.

The study examines the impact of pure electric cars reaching 57 per cent of new car sales by 2030 – known as the AU 50@30 case – when they would account for 20.8 per cent of vehicles on the road.

The modelling determines an investment benefit of $3.2 billion from the development of charging infrastructure through to 2030, the elimination of 16 million barrels a year of imported oil and a cumulative reduction in emissions of 18 million tonnes.

The report, partly funded by the Electric Vehicle Council and the NRMA motoring organisation, was recently launched at Australian Parliament House with attendance from Federal Energy Minister Josh Frydenberg MP, Minister for Urban Infrastructure and Cities Paul Fletcher MP, and Australia’s Chief Scientist Dr Alan Finkel.
