Project summary descriptions:
The primary objectives of this project include:

  • Outline a clear vision of what a future, decarbonised transport system could look like for Australia to government, industry and the general public.
  • Set targets to guide policy in supporting a transition towards low and zero emission vehicles.
  • Provide policy recommendations to local, state/territory and federal governments to inform how each level of government can support the decarbonisation of transport.
  • Articulate how a transition to a decarbonised transport system can deliver significant economic benefits to Australia including the creation of jobs, reduction in costs, support for renewable energy adoption, and improved national security.
  • Build public support for a decarbonised transport system, and the necessary policy initiatives to support this transition.
