Collaboration builds charging infrastructure
ChargeNet has installed a network of nearly 150 fast EV chargers around New Zealand, many in partnership with other fund applicants.
Read about the project
ChargeNet is the largest privately owned, fast charging network in the Southern Hemisphere. It has dramatically expanded New Zealand’s charging infrastructure in collaboration with both public and private sector EV proponents.
Its strategically positioned network of fast chargers gives EV drivers the confidence to travel around the country without range anxiety. In some cases, co-funded projects have opened up whole areas of New Zealand to EVs.
For example, ChargeNet partnered with the Thames-Coromandel District Council and Powerco on a co-funded project to install four 50kWh DC fast chargers along the Coromandel Scenic Touring Route. This filled one of the last large gaps in the network, enabling both local and tourist EV drivers to travel the area with confidence.
Integral to New Zealand’s sustainable transport initiatives, ChargeNet has partnered with local government in the largest centres – with Auckland Transport and Wellington City Council – to install a total of 60 AC chargers across the cities.
And in Northwood, ChargeNet partnered with Foodstuffs and local lines company Orion to install a charger in the New World to install a charger in the New World car park (pictured).
Installing charging infrastructure is complex and requires diverse skill-sets and resources. ChargeNet believes collaboration and future-thinking is essential to successfully building the charging infrastructure that New Zealand wants and needs.
