After spending much of 2022 working on its new partnerships with Macquarie Bank and Origin Energy, ARCC will continue to emphasise industry connections to provide turn key solutions for customers. Murley says ARCC’s collaboration with these industry bodies starts from the ethical capture of energy through to the provision of infrastructure, finance solutions and ongoing maintenance through support services.
“It is ARCC’s belief that there must be a coalition of partners to assist operators and governments to address the challenges of the roll out at scale of zero-emissions buses,” Murley told ABC. “These partnership place ARCC in a position to assist the industry in its evaluation of solutions and the provision of locally designed, manufactured and supported vehicles.”
While it works with industry members, ARCC also has some exciting events occurring in 2023. This includes the deployment of the first Australian built and designed route buses with Red Bus Services in New South Wales, Melbourne’s TSA and ComfortDelGro (CDC) in Geelong.
“Alongside our partnerships is an innovative fresh body design that we will be launching in 2023 with the Melbourne hydrogen projects we have with TSA and CDC,” Murley says.
