Ampol to install first charging bays outside of its service stations

Ampol is set to install its first AmpCharge electric vehicle charging bays outside of its service stations at Mirvac’s shopping centres.

The partnership will see Ampol more than double the number of charging bays across the property group’s retail destinations, including Broadway Sydney, South Eveleigh, and Orion Springfield Central.

Mirvac first rolled out EV charging bays for customers six years ago, and Kelly Miller, General Manager of Mirvac Retail, said since launching them, Mirvac has seen a significant rise in usage of the stations across the portfolio, with a 60 per cent increase in customer utilisation in the past year.

“Mirvac’s partnership with Ampol represents a significant milestone in electrification with two major Australian companies coming together to drive the use of more sustainable vehicles. We recognise it is our responsibility to provide our customers with more sustainable solutions and convenient access to green innovation.”

Brent Merrick, General Manager, International and New Business at Ampol, said Ampol continues to build its AmpCharge network so customers can charge with them wherever and whenever they need.

“This partnership with Mirvac will allow us to expand our offer beyond the forecourt to destinations like Mirvac’s leading property network. We look forward to commencing roll-out of this infrastructure over the coming months.”

First installation of the charging bays is expected to take place in late 2023 and will form part of Ampol’s commitment to deliver over 300 AmpCharge EV charging bays at more than 100 sites across the country.

It also puts Mirvac Retail another step towards the company realising its goal to be carbon net positive in Scope 3 emissions by 2030.
