CS Energy expands into electric vehicle charging market

CS Energy is driving its business towards a more sustainable future by offering electricity vehicle (EV) charging solutions to its Queensland Government, commercial and industrial customers.

CS Energy is installing EV charging stations at Queensland Government administrative buildings at Cannon Hill (pictured) and the Brisbane CBD.

Uptake of electric vehicles in Australia is gaining momentum as many organisations upgrade their fleets to position themselves for the future, and reduce their costs and carbon footprint.

CEO Andrew Bills said the move into EV charging solutions was part of CS Energy’s diversification strategy to ensure it remained competitive in Australia’s rapidly changing energy market.

“We identified a need amongst our large commercial and industrial customers for a simple, low cost charging solution that took the hassle out of switching to electric vehicles for large organisations, Mr Bills said.

“Listening to our customers and understanding their needs is central to CS Energy’s transition from a wholesale generator to a diversified energy company.”
