Electric vehicle (EV) adoption is growing rapidly. Achieving local, national and global climate targets will require the near-complete electrification of transportation by 2050.
Municipalities are increasingly focused on ensuring that their communities and residents do not fall behind on EV Readiness. Over the last four years, 13 municipalities in BC have adopted 100% “EV Ready” requirements for parking in new residential developments. This futureproofing allows residents to then easily install EV Supply Equipment (EVSE – i.e. EV chargers). New developments can use EV energy management systems (EVEMS) to facilitate load sharing between vehicles. Allowing for the use of EVEMS significantly reduces the cost of complying with 100% EV Ready requirements.
Clean Air Partnership and AES Engineering will share the results of the EV Ready New Residential Construction Costing Study during this webinar.
