Future Fuels Strategy: discussion paper

09 April 2021

The Australian Government should implement a temporary zero emission truck purchase incentive, to ensure low and zero emission transport technologies are to become a reality.

In its submission to the Future Fuels Strategy Discussion Paper, the Australian Trucking Association seeks to place a higher priority on heavy vehicles than is currently reflected and enabling future technologies to become commercially viable options for trucking operators. 

The submission’s main recommendations include: 

  • adressing vehicle design rules, including additional mass and width
  • introducing a zero and low emission heavy vehicle purchase incentive
  • ensuring early investments in charging stations and hydrogen refuelling stations
  • including zero and low emission vehicles in the road user charging system

The ATA has called for a strong focus on targeted government investment and clear action.
