Presenter(s): Eric Mallia, FleetCarma, Waterloo ON
Author(s): Eric Mallia, FleetCarma, Waterloo ON
Charge the North is a research initiative managed by FleetCarma in partnership with Natural Resources Canada and several electric utility companies across Canada to accelerate and enhance the nation’s electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure. Demand for charging infrastructure is rapidly increasing and utility companies and policy-makers need real-world vehicle data to inform charging infrastructure planning and load management strategies.
Project funding enabled FleetCarma to provide 1,000 EV owners across Canada with a free C2 telematics device that plugs into the vehicle’s on-board diagnostics report to collect real-world charging data, regardless of the charging station or location. In addition to collecting charging data, the project will also demonstrate advanced workplace smart charging systems, and an effective charging reimbursement system for multi-unit residential buildings.
This presentation will provide audience members with an overview of Charge the North including scope, design, implementation, and will describe key findings one-year into the program including: participant characteristics, charging profiles and load analyses for short-range and long-range plug-in vehicles, average loads at various utility system level (e.g. transmission, distribution, generation) and more.

Author(s): Simon Ouellette, ChargeHub (by Mobile Technologies Inc), Montreal QC
EV infrastructure is one of the most often quoted “”make or break”” factors when it comes to the uptake of EVs. However, comprehensive, high quality, up to date, data on infrastructure is something few stakeholders have access to on a daily basis.
In this presentation, ChargeHub uses its unique and extensive insight in charging infrastructure deployment throughout North America to present the trends observed in public infrastructure roll out in recent years, compare them between different regions, and dissect the impact of this infrastructure on EV deployment.
The presentation goes beyond just the volume of EVSE in the field today. It digs into attributes and business models than can affect the success of EV infrastructure roll out.
TS16.4 THE FUTURE OF FUELING: KEEPING THE LIGHTS ON IN THE AGE OF EVs
Presenter(s): Alan Dowdell, Vice President of Business Development, ChargePoint – Campbell CA
Author(s): Alan Dowdell, Vice President of Business Development, ChargePoint – Campbell CA
Systemic concerns that power supply infrastructure will be unable to cope with the projected demand caused by rising EV sales have come to a head recently. The number of EVs on the road around the world will rise exponentially in the next two decades, which according to the Financial Times, could mean a ‘worst case’ increase in demand for power. Projections such as these can make it seem that the road from the ‘here and now’ to the EV future is impossibly winding and wrought with challenges. But both government and public opinion recognize that we need to swing away from the status quo – poor air quality, traffic-clogged roads and increasing journey times. The power networks, auto industry, battery technologists, and charging infrastructure providers need to all advance together, collaboratively, with funding from both private investors and industry, and the state. In this presentation, ChargePoint will outline a vision for all stakeholders to collaborate on funding and regulations to fuel the EV future.

TS17.2 OPTIMIZATION OF DC FAST CHARGING STATION ECONOMICS BY ADDING LOCAL RENEWABLE POWER GENERATION AND/OR LOCAL BATTERY ENERGY STORAGE
Presenter(s): Libing Yang, Natural Resources Canada, Ottawa ON
Author(s): Libing Yang, Natural Resources Canada, Ottawa ON; Hajo Ribberink, Natural Resources Canada, Ottawa ON
The economic feasibility of DC Fast Charging (DCFC) stations is strongly impacted by the demand charges that have to be paid to the local utility. In a simulation study, the possibilities to significantly improve DCFC economics by reducing or eliminating demand charges have been investigated for DCFC stations assumed to be installed at a highway service centre in Ontario (Canada).
Various scenarios, in which the DCFCs were complemented by local renewable power generation and/or battery energy storage systems, were evaluated against a reference case with only a grid connection. The payback periods of the required additional capital investments have been examined. Simulation results and conclusions drawn from the study will be presented. Furthermore, recommendations for future work in this area will be proposed.
