Heavy Vehicle Charging

DRDC Business Case Program for Location Specific HV Charging Trials

The Australian Government's Trials Business Case Program

Have you heard of the program is your company intending to submit a proposal?

The business case program, established by the Department of Infrastructure, Regional Development and Cities, supports the development of HV charging trials to fund infrastructure upgrades to address location specific issues for Heavy Vehicles. A key objective of the program is confirming the feasibility of direct user charging for heavy vehicles in return for specific infrastructure improvements and that direct user charging delivers benefits for users and governments.

The government has set aside $2 million to support the development of business cases for implementing Location Specific HV Charging trials. It is now seeking proposals from industry stakeholders for the Government to contribute funding towards developing selected business cases. Business cases will be chosen based on the identified problem; benefits to heavy vehicle users, stakeholder support; and the proposed trial's feasibility, value for money and alignment with the program's principles and objectives.

An important element of the trials will be the ability to efficiently and effectively directly charge heavy vehicles that use and benefit from the additional investment. In many cases this will likely require a technology partner to perform the direct charging.

If you are looking for a technology partner to be part of your envisaged solution (eg to facilitate the direct charging aspects) and be included in your proposal team then Road Freight NSW may be able to help, please contact Simon O'Hara for further information on simon.ohara@rfnsw.com.au
