The Low Emission Vehicles Contestable Fund (LEVCF) is open for a new round of applications, Energy and Resources Minister Megan Woods announced today.

Up to $3.5 million is on offer.

The investment focus for this round aims to stimulate continued innovation and investment in areas such as filling key gaps in the charging network, facilitating the scale-up of low emission vehicles technology, high-visibility demonstration projects and electric vehicle (EV) technology innovation.

“We’ve seen in previous rounds the exciting projects this fund can help deliver,” said Minister Woods. Projects to get the green light in the last round included hydrogen fuel cell powered buses at the Ports of Auckland, electric heavy vehicle trials, development of an EV battery testing method and 34 new public charging stations.

“I look forward to seeing how applicants will use this funding round to help bring the benefits of these emerging technologies to even more New Zealanders.”

You have until 9am on Thursday 21 March 2019 to get your proposals in.
