The time to ask questions arising from our Industry Block B speakers.
Questions to be submitted via the Q&A function. These will be read out to the speakers by the stream MC John Harris  and answered live.
Speakers this session were:
- Michael Lord (BZE)
- Jonathan Spear (Infrastructure Victoria)
- Robin Smit (UTS)

11:30 am
Beyond Zero Emissions' plans show how Australia can eliminate greenhouse gas emissions in all sectors. In this talk, Michael Lord will describe how electric vehicles fit with Australia's broader zero carbon future. He will also discuss:
•             how renewable energy can power electric vehicles including, cars, trains, trucks and mining vehicles. 
•             the role of EVs in supporting the decarbonisation of the electricity sector
•             the impact on transport costs and national energy security
•             supporting government policies. 
11:44 am
Jonathan’s presentation will highlight Infrastructure Victoria’s world-leading advice and recommendations to the Victorian Government on the infrastructure required to enable highly automated and zero emissions vehicles in Victoria, completed in October 2018. 

11:57 am
The talk will discuss the current GHG emissions performance of the Australian on-road fleet, and the main factors that contribute to an unexpected increase rather than a decrease in these national emissions. It will then discuss the case for rapid electrification of the Australian fleet, the delays due to fleet turnover and the expected impacts on emissions in different scenarios (fossil-fuelled vs. more renewables in the electricty sector etc.).
