While sales of electric cars are accelerating in China, Europe and the United States, in Australia they have stalled. Do battery-powered cars have a future on our roads?

 Duane Robinson believes electric cars are the way of the future and is doing his bit to develop the infrastructure needed to encourage more motorists to adopt them.

A senior lecturer and Deputy Director of the University of Wollongong’s (UOW) Sustainable Buildings Research Centre, Dr Robinson has overseen the installation of electric vehicle charging stations at the University’s main Wollongong Campus and at its Innovation Campus.

The charging stations will collect data on electric vehicle usage and charging requirements, which will be used to improve understanding of the demand requirements and power quality impact of these vehicles on the electricity grid.
