Event description

Description

Emerging technology such as battery storage and electric vehicles have the potential to transform regional Australia. How can local governments get ahead in the race to the future?

The Cities Power Partnership is excited to be hosting an Australian-first roundtable and electric vehicle road-test at the iconic Mt Panorama racetrack in Bathurst for Cities Power Partnership regional and rural councils in the Murray Darling Basin. Attendees will have the chance to test-drive an electric car on the famous track, followed by a roundtable and networking event hosted by EV and renewable energy experts.

This is your chance to hear from some of Australia's leading experts on the opportunities for your council around batteries and EVs, and from other regional Cities Power Partners about some of the innovative projects they have underway.
