City of Vancouver EV Infrastructure Strategy Report

Published by Dahlia Garas, Gustavo O. Collantes, and Michael A. Nicholas

The role of the local government in supporting the growth and maintenance
of a strong plug‐in electric vehicle market in Vancouver is evaluated in
this report. This report identifies areas of action in which a local
government, such as Vancouver, can impact their region based on a thorough
understanding of the current plug‐in vehicle market, international
demonstration projects, and research efforts. Specifically, workplace and
public charging is needed to reinforce and fulfill the gaps from home‐based
charging in dense urban regions. Local government can encourage
investments in workplace and public charging by providing clear regional
guidelines for installers and customers, providing appropriate incentives
to businesses, allowing for an innovative marketplace in the vehicle
charging industry, and collaborating with the regional utility to identify
specific opportunities for optimization and encouragement of utility rates
and vehicle‐grid interactions.
