Electricity powers nearly every aspect of our lives. When transport systems are powered using renewable energy sources it can provide a cheap, environmentally sound approach to transporting ourselves as well as transporting goods and services.
At SHASA we are advocating strongly for the rapid introduction of electric bikes and vehicles to our region. To enable this will require a change in some network infrastructure such as the scaling up of charging points for electric vehicles. We also see a strong role for public transport powered by electricity that can service the Shire and beyond.
SHASA also sees a fast approaching future where electric car battery systems become an integrated part of the grid and are utilised for transport, powering the home and feeding back into the grid according to demand needs.
