Federal Government Announces ZEV Strategy Planning
May 26th, 2017
Today, Friday May 26th, the Federal Government announced plans to develop a national zero-emission vehicle (ZEV) strategy. For local government and provinces working toward increasing ZEVs (e.g. electric vehicles) the intent to form a national strategy is excellent news.
The strategy will form advisory groups with stakeholders from government, academia, industry, and the non-government sectors. A national strategy will be complemented by already announced funding for Natural Resources Canada (NRCan) to deploy charging infrastructure (e.g. EV charging stations).
Ultimately, supporting EVs through this strategy has the potential to drastically reduce Canada’s greenhouse gas emissions.
