In October 2021, the Australian Government committed to a plan to make Australia emit net zero carbon emissions while preserving existing industries and seeing the country become a leader in low emissions technologies.
It was this plan that planted the seed that created Revora – to protect the sustainability of the refrigerated transport industry through electrification.
The (Morrison) Government’s original plan was ‘built on five principles: technology not taxes; expand choices not mandates; drive down the cost of a range of new technologies; keep energy prices down with affordable and reliable power; and, be accountable for progress.’ It is unclear at the time of writing how this will change long term under the current Albanese Government.
At the time of the announcement, $35 billion had been invested in renewable energy since 2017, with that having expanded more since. Australia is second only behind the EU in reducing emissions.
While there is a push away from diesel, there are other pull factors – like using energy that is made here rather than imported from overseas – and low noise that allows night operations in built up areas – and no tailpipe pollution coming out on our footpaths.
The Government’s plan to achieve that net zero status by 2050 features a range of strategies to deploy at scale that your refrigerated transport fleet business can take advantage of in moving to the electric space.
Some of these include incentivisation to move to a carbon free model, infrastructure investments to ensure the nation can handle the large scale deployment and certification for businesses that take part.
Revora understands that for many refrigerated truck fleet owners in Australia that much of this can be overwhelming and confusing – which is where we step in.
Revora’s team will lead your business through the benefits that you can receive through electrification (so you don’t have to!).
