The Australian Government should consider a national diesel storage network as part of its framework for increasing domestic fuel security, the ATA’s response to the Government’s domestic fuel storage capacity request for information says.
In the response, the ATA calls for:
- investments and decisions to increase domestic liquid fuel security following the RFI process
- incentives to electrify urban delivery and service vehicles and bring forward the development of hydrogen fuel cell vehicles to increase the long-term energy security of our transport fleet.
- government support for developing an Australian hydrogen industry, including for industrial uses.
The ATA also made a submission to the liquid fuel security review and responded to the Government’s decision to store fuel in the United States.
