Caravan Industry Association of Australia

Yesterday’s announcement by the Federal Government on a new National Electric Vehicle Strategy and upcoming industry consultation has been welcomed by Caravan Industry Association of Australia.

The Caravan Industry brings with it a world of opportunity when considering electric vehicles, charging infrastructure and microgrid application. Being part of the consultation process for the strategy will provide confidence to a domestic industry that is heavily focussed on regional and rural growth and economic support.

“We look forward to sharing with the government our industry insights and innovations, with many of our member parks adopting EV as part of their individual business models” said Stuart Lamont, CEO of Caravan Industry Association of Australia.

“We know that much of industry has started to turn their attentions to the new phase of energy use, we are currently a valuable part of the charging infrastructure for many communities”.

“It is important that the Government understand the breadth of our role in the transition to electric energy use, whether it be to install charging stations at their parks or the looking, how a microgrid could be installed to better service energy use in regional/rural areas or electric RV’s.

“Our industry is moving in the right direction and has a part to play,” said Stuart.
