ActewAGL’s climate action achievements have been recognised at the ACT’s 2023 Climate Choices Business Awards.

The business was awarded under the Zero Emissions Early Movers category for its work in progressing electric vehicle (EV) uptake in the Canberra region. The Zero Emissions Early Movers category was awarded to organisations that have been an early adopter of, and advocate for, zero emissions vehicles.

ActewAGL has made finding, financing, and charging an EV as easy as possible through an innovative range of products and services bundled into a cohesive and easy-to-navigate proposition through the ActewAGL evHub.

The evHub is the first of its kind in Australia, combining all the requirements to purchase an EV in a single online platform. The evHub provides credible information and advice and conveniently meets customers wherever they may be on their EV journey—from awareness to purchase.

ActewAGL’s customers have provided feedback that they appreciate the convenience and practicality of having the information to make an informed decision, all in one place.

ActewAGL is further enabling the transition to zero emissions driving by continuing to build out a fast and reliable public charging network with partner Evie Networks, delivering solutions for businesses through evFleet, and providing commercial charging solutions for businesses, apartment buildings and new developments. In addition, ActewAGL’s ‘Within Range’ media campaign aims to break down the barrier of range anxiety and demonstrate that zero emissions driving doesn’t impede lifestyles.

ActewAGL general manager retail Rachael Turner and group manager energy transition products Todd Eagles accepted the award on behalf of ActewAGL from Minister for Water, Energy and Emissions Reduction Shane Rattenbury.

“ActewAGL is proud to have produced the first-of-its-kind evHub to support customers in the transition to zero emissions driving and is proud to be contributing to a more sustainable transport future for our local region,” Turner said.

“Our community goal of seeing a quarter of Canberra households driving an EV by 2030, and providing the means and solutions for Canberrans to get there, demonstrates the important role we, as a local organisation, play in enabling a sustainable future for our community.”
