Electric vehicle (EV) technology presents an enormous opportunity to help provinces and territories reduce their greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions from the transportation sector, which is the second largest contributor to GHGs in Canada.

A collaborative report released in Ottawa by Bruce Power, Plug’n Drive, Pollution Probe and the University of Waterloo’s Department of Chemical Engineering, explores ways to build upon existing policy framework at the federal and provincial levels with respect to plug-in EVs.

The report, titled Accelerating the Deployment of Plug-in Electric Vehicles in Canada and Ontario, also highlights opportunities to accelerate and optimize the decarbonization capability of EVs.

You can also compare the benefits of Electric vs. Gas vehicles through Bruce Power’s EV calculator and learn more about the collaborative Plug’n Drive/Bruce Power iPhone App, which can be downloaded through iTunes.
