AEVA National Conference 2024




On behalf of the organising committee, I have the pleasure to invite the Australian EV community to Tasmania for the AEVA National Conference. 

The annual conference, which occurs in every state, will come to Tasmania; bringing 150-200 enthusiasts, policy makers, council representatives, and influencers from EV manufacturers and industry, and the buyer chain from around Australia to discuss the latest developments in EV use.

At the conference, we will be discussing and sharing the latest in: Fleet management and the business end of electric; The State of Play and the electric future; The economics of electrification; Electrification policy and planning; Charging; Heavy vehicles, in the water and in the air and personal mobility. That’s just to name a few.

Whether you’re a corporation looking to showcase your latest innovations, a government agency seeking to promote sustainable policies or a community organisation dedicated to driving positive change, we invite you to join us on this journey.

Together, we can amplify our impact, raise awareness, and inspire others to take action. Together, let’s harness the power of innovation and collaboration to create a world where energy is clean, efficient, and accessible to all.

About AEVA

The Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA) LTD is a volunteer-run, not-for-profit organisation dedicated to the cause of switching Australia's transport networks to electric drive as quickly as possible.  We all share a common interest in electromobility and climate-friendly transport. Formed after the oil price shocks of 1973, the AEVA is the longest continuously running EV society in the world.  We represent all EV users and enthusiasts, current and prospective, and are more than happy to offer jargon-free advice on which EV is right for you. We also make regular submissions to government and industry about policies which will help transition to electric drive, and away from imported fossil fuels for transport. 


Acknowledgement of Country

We acknowledge the muwinina people, the traditional owners of the Land upon which we work, and we pay our respect to Aboriginal Elders; past and present. We respect all Tasmanian Aboriginal people, their culture and their rights as the first peoples of lutruwita.

Diversity Statement

The AEVA National Conference embraces diversity and inclusion, welcoming individuals from all backgrounds to contribute their unique perspectives and talents to the advancement of the electric vehicle (EV) industry. We recognize that diversity fuels innovation and progress, and thus we are committed to creating an environment where all attendees feel valued, respected, and empowered.
