ZERO EMISSIONS CHARGERS
Can we identify zero emission technologies and develop the necessary equipment to operate DC Fast Charging Stations in areas of the province not serviced by the electrical grid?
Zero Emission Chargers in Highway Rest Areas
The B.C. government has established a goal to increase the use of electric vehicles to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. To support this, the Province is developing a network of DC Fast Charging Stations to allow electric vehicles to operate throughout the province, including charging stations in provincial highway rest areas which are located between communities. To date, eleven charging sites have been installed with another eight planned for installation in 2019. Some rest areas, however, do not have access to the electrical grid meaning a complete network of charging stations cannot be implemented at this time.
This equipment and technology developed will need to work in a variety of locations throughout the province and must take into account the varied weather and geographical conditions.
