NewVolt officially launches in Melbourne

Anthony Headlam, NewVolt CEO, speaks at Taxi.

Wednesday night, net zero solutions startup, NewVolt, officially launched its brand to industry.

Over 100 guests and stakeholders gathered at Taxi above Federation Square in Melbourne where they heard of NewVolt’s plans to develop a network of truck charging hubs along Australia’s major freight corridors.

Critical industrial precincts will be targeted for the operational flexibility and low cost renewable energy that will be afforded electrified fleets.

A presenter at last year’s VTA’s Alternative Fuel Summit, NewVolt used the launch to build further confidence in transport buyers, operators, OEMs and government bodies that the right fast charging infrastructure will, with support and investment, change the industry for the better.

Co-Founders Anthony Headlam, Rainer Knobloch and Andy Evans spoke at length about the opportunity it represented for transport and the renewables sector and thanked many of the key partners and family present at the event.

“With electric trucks, Australia no longer needs to be dependent on price volatile imported diesel to fuel its transport industry and supply chain,” said Headlam.

“Electric trucks, powered by Australia’s abundance of wind and sun, offer us true energy independence and supply chain security.”

Members from OEMs, suppliers, truck dealerships, industry bodies, media, renewable energy and consultancy firms were in attendance.
