Electric vehicle fast charging master plan
NSW will be the easiest place to buy and use an electric vehicle (EV) in Australia, with a $131 million investment to develop a world-class charging network. Under the NSW Electric Vehicle Strategy, this investment will expand existing public fast charging across the State.
The master plan showcases the current and indicative future network of public EV fast chargers in NSW. It is first step in the roll out of guaranteed widespread charging, highlighting where stations could be optimally placed. This means EV drivers can be confident they will be able to drive their vehicles whenever and wherever they need to.
Master plan map
You can access the interactive master plan map below or in full screen here.
The map includes functionality to turn on and off different datasets, allowing you to analyse separate datasets at the same time. Instructions on how to use the map can be found within the tool. The data sets are free to download and will be available from 17 September 2021.
Future locations for fast charging infrastructure (referred to as optimal zones), and number of chargers in them have been identified using a robust methodology. This includes analysing a range of technical, social, and economic considerations. Each optimal zone has been chosen based on:
- Projected electric vehicle adoption in the area
- Traffic movements
- Tourism data
- Vehicle ownership
- Local points of interest
- Location of major cabling across NSW
- Available substation capacities

Who is the master plan for?
Over the next four years, the master plan will help to plan future NSW public fast charging stations (50kW and above). The master plan map will also support industry and planners in finding ideal locations for public fast charging stations.
The implementation of NSW Electric Vehicle Strategy initiatives, including for fast charging, is contingent on the passage of legislation which is now delayed until at least October.
Interested in finding out more information about hosting public fast charging?
Sites within and around the optimal zones indicated on the master plan map will be prioritised for public EV charging.
New public fast charging stations with multiple charging bays will be co-funded by the NSW government, focusing on fast and ultra-fast charging.
A prospectus and expression of interest will be available shortly for sites interested in hosting stations.
