Ampol to launch 120 electric vehicle charging stations

National petrol company Ampol has announced plans to unveil a national charging network for electric vehicles from June.

"AmpCharge" will see the company roll out 120 recharge stations across Australia, with the first five pilot sites at Ampol service stations in Carseldine QLD, Alexandria NSW, Northmead NSW, Altona North VIC, and Belmont WA, coming online in June and July 2022.

These sites will feature AmpCharge chargers supplied with renewable energy, or covered by green certificates, and will be capable of delivering charge up to 150kWh.

Ampol said it aims to roll out approximately 120 sites by October 2023 as part of an agreement with the Australian Renewable Energy Agency (ARENA).

Ampol Managing Director and CEO, Matt Halliday said the announcement is an important step forward in the execution of Ampol’s future energy and mobility strategy.

"As we begin to evolve our national network, consumers will see AmpCharge in Ampol service stations, depots and terminals right across the country," he said.

"For the first time, we’ll also be entering homes, workplaces and shopping centres as we seek to deliver simple and efficient charging solutions at convenient locations to keep people moving."

At-home branded charging infrastructure is also expected to be developed under AmpCharge, expected to be bundled in with wider home energy products and services.
