Nexport and EnergyAustralia to Aid Transition to Electric Buses

Nexport and EnergyAustralia have announced a partnership to provide a “one stop shop” electrification service to accelerate the uptake of zero-emission buses in Australia.

Nexport, a zero-emission transport provider, will collaborate with EnergyAustralia to provide green infrastructure solutions for public and private transport operators across Australia.

The partnership will address the growing need to reduce emissions in Australia’s transport sector, the nation’s third-largest source of greenhouse gas emissions
Nexport CEO, Michel van Maanen said:

“Working with EnergyAustralia to bring an end-to-end solution to the market is a critical step in electrifying the transport industry. This unique collaboration between one of Australia's leading energy retailers and a zero-emission vehicle and solutions provider has created an exciting opportunity for the transport industry to access a “one-stop-shop” to accelerate the transition to cleaner and greener transport solutions.”

A 2021 report from BusVIC and Monash University revealed that Australian bus operators were concerned about adopting zero emission buses due to difficulties with establishing energy infrastructure, the cost of zero emission technologies and doubts about their capabilities to operate, charge and maintain zero emission buses.

Nexport and EnergyAustralia therefore hope to address these barriers and reduce the harmful emissions from the nation’s transport sector. The two companies will work together to enable interested operators to smoothly electrify their bus fleets and transportation depots.

EnergyAustralia Chief Customer Officer Mark Brownfield said:

“EnergyAustralia is excited to work with Nexport to electrify Australia’s transportation sector. We see this as a strong example of how we’re ‘doing energy better’ by helping the transportation industry embrace cleaner energy solutions. We look forward to supporting major players in delivering greener cities, cleaner communities and quieter neighbourhoods.”

The “one stop shop” electrification service will include analyses, solution designs, engineering and construction services and delivery of vehicles and charging infrastructure. Furthermore, the companies will supply the fleets with renewable energy and provide ongoing maintenance services for vehicles and charging infrastructure.
