Future of Fast EV Charging in Australia

Last Updated: September 26th, 2023  | Infrastructure 

Fast delivery is the peak of modern life conveniences – who hasn’t felt frustrated when something takes longer than expected? The same need for speed is reflected in the push for more publically accessible DC fast chargers in Australia. Home charging and AC power stations are alright – for now. Australia has a long way to go before fast and ultrafast charging locations are as common as petrol service stations. Let’s go through the good, the bad, and the hopeful for the future of fast-charging opportunities.


Level 3 DC chargers are also known as fast chargers because the power flows directly from the charging station to the EV battery. These stations already exist in Australia, and many of them are available for public use! Here’s an overview of public charging locations as of June 30, 2023.

Increasing Options

2023 has been an exceptional year for electric vehicle sales. According to the Electric Vehicle Council, 2023 sales increased by 121% compared to 2022! The full State of EV report is full of interesting stats for the math-heads. For example, all states and territories have enjoyed twice as many EV sales in 2023.  As for what area of the country is leading the charge for sales… it’s ACT with 21.8% of all new cars being EV.
EVs are quickly snapped up after the long journey into Australian drivers’ waiting arms. EV model variety has also increased this year; 56% more options were available for purchase.

Overcoming Challenges

The National Electric Vehicle Strategy promises to reduce emissions and lay the foundation for Australia’s EV future. Objective #2 is all about establishing resources and infrastructure for rapid EV uptake, including the Driving the Nation funding program and detailing individual state grant opportunities to install EV charging stations.
Recent updates to the national construction code ensure all new Class 2 buildings (such as apartment blocks) are EV-charging-capable. If all modern properties incorporate such futureproof details during the planning and development stage, setting up EV charging stations will become as normal as moving a new fridge. It’s convenient and cost-effective in the long run. Queensland has already rolled out funding to make EV-ready government buildings, inspiring other town planning projects and co-funding program options.

Why Fast Charging Matters

More EVs on the road is something to celebrate – but Australia is lagging behind with EV charging infrastructure. The government has been slow to support a true build-out of a national network. Three things really matter for EV drivers when they need to charge in a public place: reliability, accessibility, and speed.
Private business owners, landlords, and community centres have this early opportunity to fulfill a great need in the EV market. Establishing a sustainable new source of revenue from EV chargers that meet these three needs.
