Electric Vehicles For Business Forum - Summary and Resources

OCTOBER 2019. Carbon Neutral Adelaide Partners and guests took part in a Forum on 21 October 2019 to explore electric vehicles for fleets, as a pathway towards a low carbon business.  Organisations who can assist with electric vehicles for commercial uses presented on their services and products, and the group were able to test drive the passenger vehicles currently on the market. 

The forum was presented together with the Australasian Fleet Management Association and included presentations on Charge Together Fleets, Adelaide Airport's electric vehicles, SG Fleet's "e-start" program, SEA Electric's commercial vehicles, and the new Zero Automotive Utility. Some links and resources are provided here to assist with organisations investigating electric vehicles.
