may clear another speed bump to adoption after Ampol revealed plans to install commercial chargers for larger vehicles at its Australian service stations, AAP reports.

The petrol giant announced a partnership with local mobility firm SEA Electric on Tuesday, revealing the companies would also work together to build destination chargers and

commercial depots to support the technology. The deal is one of several announced by Ampol in Australia to boost its electric vehicle-charging network, which is due to

reach 120 locations by the end of the year. Ampol energy general manager James Myatt said the new AmpCharge announcement was designed to encourage Australian businesses

to adopt zero-emission vehicles. We know our business customers are looking for lower emissions solutions and want to ensure their investment in commercial electric

vehicles can be supported with efficient and reliable charging technologies. Charging stations developed under the deal will be located across Ampol’s 1900 Australian

service stations. The company has only rolled out five AmpCharge charging stations on its properties so far – in NSW, Victoria, Queensland and Western Australia – but has

committed to installing chargers at 120 sites by December 2023 in a program partly funded by the Australian Renewable Energy Agency.   02:45 Elephant seal that
