Driving towards the circular economy: local government actions to harness electric vehicles as a disruptive technology to encourage substitution of electric vehicles for conventional internal combustion engine vehicles

This research with analysis of new evidence aims to shift academic and public debate about the role of electric vehicles in reducing the negative externalities including greenhouse gas emissions that arise from the use of oil as an energy source for motor vehicle transport. These multiple negative externalities have environmental social and economic consequences and the research aims to provide new insights with an Australian perspective on the role of local government in assisting the transition away from the age of oil towards a new driving future.
