Electric Vehicles in Strata

Strata Community Association (SCA) is proud to officially launch its industry-leading Electric Vehicles in Strata – Phase 1 ‘State of Play’ Report.

In response to the rapidly increasing demand for electric vehicles (EVs) in Australia, Strata Community Association (SCA) identified a critical need to investigate the significant, and unique challenges that are faced when attempting to integrate EVs into strata.

In the first of two reports, SCA’s ‘State of Play’ establishes the progress each jurisdiction throughout Australia has made towards supporting the integration of EVs into strata, ranking each state and territory government’s policy response.

In response to the rapidly increasing demand for electric vehicles (EVs) in Australia, SCA identified a critical need to investigate the significant, and unique challenges that are faced when integrating EVs into strata complexes, like apartments and townhouses.

This report is the first of two reports to be released by SCA. Our ‘State of Play’ first seeks to establish the progress each jurisdiction throughout Australia has made, specifically towards advancing policies that support the integration of EVs into strata. Our hope is that this report acts as a baseline for future conversations with decision-makers, our members and stakeholders.

SCA is the first organisation to specifically investigate the current support for strata, and outline the multitude of issues that strata faces as a result of EV integration.

By gaining an understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of each jurisdiction’s EV strategy in relation to strata, we may further drive the change necessary to ensure that one of Australia’s largest residential markets is adequately supported.
