The Queensland Government has released a guide to EV chargers for property owners, planners and developers.

Minister for State Development, Manufacturing, Infrastructure and Planning Minister Cameron Dick said electric vehicle ownership is gaining momentum, and residential and commercial buildings in Queensland, as well as public infrastructure will need to keep up with the technological advancement.

“Queensland has been leading the transition with charging stations from Coolangatta to Cairns,” said Mr Dick.

“We are seeing increasing interest in EV charging from local governments, planners and property developers, but there is confusion over what type of infrastructure should be installed, and where.

“This EV guide provides information on installing the appropriate electric vehicle charging infrastructure in new and existing buildings. A simple checklist for differing locations is provided to make the planner or property owners’ job much easier.

“The guide has information on a range of building types, from workplaces, tourism destinations, shopping centres, right through to fast and ultra-fast charging on highways,” he said.
