    To reduce carbon emissions, electric vehicles (EVs) are a promising alternative to their internal combustion engine counterparts. This research aims to assess the feasibility of EVs and EV charging infrastructure in Western Australia. A software suite was developed that monitors EVs, EV charging and renewable energy, which is utilised in public trials involving key sectors and industries. The software analyses driver behaviour, charging patterns and how they relate to energy generation and storage. This thesis provides insight into EV integration and how future adoption in Australia can be best established.
