NSW Net Zero Plan with the Strategy Goals that Inspire the Acceptance of Electric Cars by Removing Logistical and Financial barriers

The Government of New South Wales has publicized a new idea for fast-track car agreement by backing up the rollout of infrastructure that charges fast, incentivizing fleet consumptions of electric cars and ensures that all new structures are electric vehicles.  The new measures that reveal on March 14, 2020, which was part of the initial stage in the government of the Berejiklian ten-year net-zero plan, will lead to vital aims of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050.  They will move the model availability program and the electric vehicle (EV) infrastructure over the coming three years and will eliminate unnecessary barriers to electronic car acceptance, such as high prices of purchase and access to off-street charging. Electric vehicles (EVs) have higher costs of purchase when you compare it with diesel and petrol vehicles; hence their prices should fall so that they have competitive strengths: they require little maintenance since they have few moving parts and have low energy costs. 

The report claims that a user who changes to an electric vehicle (EV) saves $1300 on fuel and $1300 on maintenance per year. The program potentials co-fund the ability of vehicle fleet holders such as car share companies, car rental companies, and local councils and deployment of fast EVs charging development, hence procuring electric vehicles. The government says that these motivations will filter to the second hand-market of the car since cars are usually a second-hand souk after almost five years; this gives NSW drivers more options of electric vehicles at a lower cost. New South Wales is the first state to present measures that target to fast track electronic car acceptance. The government argues that it is going to upkeep amendments to the NSW Structure Sustainability Index (BASIX) and National Construction Code; hence it makes sure that all new structures are ready and are for the electric vehicle.

The report says that it could include requiring new structures to offer electrical wiring and conduits, which makes it easy to install EV charging equipment. Parking and licensing regulations will support the acceptance of electric vehicles and the effective rollout of the charging setup.  Finally, the government leads by example, whereby it increases its fleet goal for hybrid or electric passenger vehicles up to 30 percent by 2023, with around 10 percent to be electric. Chief Executive of Electric Vehicle Council states NSW is the primary state to implement measures that target that aid electric car penetration; hence this predicts that other countries will follow suit as soon as possible.
