The opening round of Future Fuels Fund will provide 16.5 million AUD in grants to support EV fast-charging stations across capital cities and regional centres. The Fund is being administered by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA). This announcement adds to the 21 million AUD the government has already invested through ARENA for two major EV charging networks across Australia.

Target sites include: NSW Central Coast, Wollongong, Geelong, the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast. Each location is expected to receive a minimum of four fast-charging stations.
