C4C - Electric Vehicles & Sustainable Mobility Online Panel

Coalition for Conservation invites you to join us at our online panel and Q&A on Electric Vehicles and Sustainable Mobility.

You will hear an address from The Hon Matt Kean MP, NSW Minister for Energy & Environment and live from our panelists (Behyad Jafari - CEO Electric Vehicle Council, Tim Trumper - Chairman NRMA and Tim Washington - JET Charge founder) on: 

  • What effect will COVID-19 have on the EV industry and future policies;
  • Recharging our economies post lockdown: how the Government's focus on manufacturing ties in with the global transition to EVs;
  •  What are the opportunities for the development of supply chain activities for vehicles, batteries, charges and electrical infrastructure in Australia.

Transitioning our economy to clean transport over the next decade requires planning and motivation and recent pictures of clear skies and clean air from around the world have captured the public's imagination. This is a future we can all continue to enjoy.

We look forward to your participation.

Kind regards,

Cristina Talacko
