Welcome to the most fun and comprehensive electric vehicle festival in Australia!
The Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival is delivered each year by a range of supportive Hunter organisations and businesses, led by the Tom Farrell Institute for the Environment at the University of Newcastle.
Electric Vehicles in all shapes and sized from bicycles to trains are a key technology in making our cities and towns nicer and more prosperous places to live, so we want electric vehicles here, we want them here fast and we want to get Australian business in on the action!
The Hunter Valley Electric Vehicle Festival 'EVFest' is all about thinking of sustainable transport in fun and innovative ways that support the development of electric vehicle industries in the region. We already build our state's electric trains and mining equipment, time to see what else we can do!
So get involved. Come to EVFest 2014, experience an electric vehicle future at the EV Show, enter the charity electric bike ride, or build an electric vehicle for the EV Prize challenge.
The future for the Hunter is truly Electric!
