November 17th, 2016
The City of Vancouver announced plans for the EV Ecosystem Strategy. The strategy identifies 32 priority actions, with funding of $3 million, the city will deliver on between 2016 and 2021 with the goal of:
1) Expanding access to home and workplace charging.
2) Improve the public charging network.
3) Integrate EV infrastructure planning into core City processes.
The strategy allocates $2 million for public fast charging hubs resulting in 20-25 fast charging stations, $500,000 to install an additional 40 public Level 2 stations, and another $500,000 to incentive Multi-unit Residential Building and Workplace charging retrofits.
Vancouver believes that 100% renewable transportation is possible by 2050 with this strategy.
