      Bryce Gaton, AEVA EV consultant, safety trainer and writer

      Bryce has been working and writing on Electric Vehicles (EVs) for over a decade. His interest in EVs comes in part from his desire to lead a low environmental impact lifestyle – plus the fact that EVs are way better to drive than fossil fuelled ones! His latest EV drive is a Hyundai Kona electric in which he has already covered over 20,000km – a third of which has been interstate travel. 

      Bryce’s work is currently split between EV consultancy and as the EV safety trainer/supervisor for Melbourne University’s School of Engineering. He is also the secretary of the Victorian branch of the Australian Electric Vehicle Association (AEVA), chair of the Victorian AEVA sub-committee for EV Charging Support and editor of EV News. (The national newsletter of the AEVA). 

      He regularly writes on EV topics for TheDriven website and Renew magazine and on behalf of both AEVA and Renew presents on EV issues and opportunities to government, business and community groups.
