Nexport and EnergyAustralia are working together to provide a unique “one stop shop – grid to road and beyond” electrification offering to help public and private sector customers accelerate the uptake of zero emission transport.
Nexport Pty Ltd (Nexport) and EnergyAustralia are working together to provide net zero transportation and green infrastructure solutions for government and corporate customers across Australia.
Australia’s zero emission transport solutions provider and the energy retailer will leverage their extensive expertise to enable the provision of bespoke end-to-end solutions to customers across the public/private/industrial transportation and employee mobility sector.
The two leading companies aim to address a community need, with a 2021 report1 from BusVIC and Monash University finding that [bus] operators were “most concerned about establishing energy infrastructure, the cost and commercial viability of zero emission buses (ZEB) technologies, and their own capabilities to successfully operate, charge and maintain ZEBs.”
Their work together also helps to urgently address growing emissions in the transport sector – the third largest source of greenhouse gas emissions in Australia.
Government and major operators in the transport industry interested in electrifying their fleets and transportation depots will be provided analysis (fleet and electricity network), solution design (fleet and charging), engineering and construction services, vehicle delivery, commissioning and charging infrastructure. This includes the supply of green/renewable energy, and fleet operations through to ongoing maintenance (vehicle and charging infrastructure).
Nexport CEO Michel van Maanen said: “Working with EnergyAustralia to bring an end-to-end solution to the market is a critical step in electrifying the transport industry. This unique collaboration between one of Australia's leading energy retailers and a zero-emission vehicle and solutions provider has created an exciting opportunity for the transport industry to access a “one-stop-shop” to accelerate the transition to cleaner and greener transport solutions.”
EnergyAustralia Chief Customer Officer Mark Brownfield said: “EnergyAustralia is excited to work with Nexport to electrify Australia’s transportation sector. We see this as a strong example of how we’re ‘doing energy better’ by helping the transportation industry embrace cleaner energy solutions. We look forward to supporting major players in delivering greener cities, cleaner communities and quieter neighbourhoods.”
