About this Event

Harnessing the transformations in electro-mobility, energy systems and urban development

The WA Government aspires to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050 and supports the Federal Government’s target of reducing emissions by 26-28% of 2005 emissions by 2030.

This webinar will explore how we can work together to achieve these targets in the Perth and broader Western Australian context by better integrating electro‐mobility, energy systems and urban development.
