Ampol is Australia’s leading transport energy provider.

Objective

Ampol approached Yurika to establish a national electric vehicle (EV) charging network across Australia. Their primary objective was to address range anxiety among EV users and promote EV adoption. They sought to integrate EV charging stations into their existing retail sites to cater to the service demands of their customers. Additionally, Ampol required metering services on a national scale to support their Future Energy and Decarbonisation Strategy, which included expanding their energy retail offerings. 

Solution

Yurika mobilised teams across Queensland, New South Wales, Victoria, and Western Australia to address Ampol’s requirements.

The solution involved a staged approach, which included: 

  • site investigations, 
  • detailed design, 
  • procurement, 
  • construction, 
  • commissioning, and  
  • project closure.   

Implementation varied from site to site, with the installation of EV chargers complemented by the integration of solar panels and batteries at selected locations. To cater for different levels of demand, sites were equipped with multiple EV chargers while others maintained single EV charging units. 

During the demand of peak delivery, Yurika commissioned two EV charging stations per month. In several locations in NSW, Yurika also upgraded the local grid connection. This included conducting work outside the property boundary of the Distribution Network Service Provider (DNSP).    

During the commissioning phase, Yurika’s metering team installed, tested, and commissioned the energy meters, ensuring seamless integration with Ampol’s billing systems.  

Outcomes

The collaboration between Yurika and Ampol established 27 EV charging locations across regions, including Southeast Queensland, Sydney, Perth, and Melbourne. These sites are located close to major metropolitan and regional road infrastructure, effectively catering to service demands of Ampol’s customers and building upon the existing EV infrastructure network.  

The implementation of distributed energy systems such as solar panels and battery energy storage systems, allowed for excess energy storage, supporting better return on investment.  Metering services enabled Ampol to streamline billing processes with network service providers, optimising operational efficiency. 

The project’s alignment with government-supported initiatives, such as the Queensland Electric Super-Highway, and the Blackspot program has played a strategically significant role in progressing Ampol’s clean energy transition.
