Call for Proposals: Electric Vehicle and Alternative Fuel Infrastructure
Excerpt from NRCan press release
Canadians will soon have access to more electric car and alternative fuel infrastructure thanks to support from the Government provided through Budget 2016. This will result in more charging and refuelling stations for electric and alternative fuel vehicles, supporting more low-carbon vehicles on our roads.
Canada’s Minister of Natural Resources, the Honourable Jim Carr, announced on May 10 that the Government of Canada is requesting proposals to support electric vehicle and alternative fuel infrastructure projects. The funding aims not only to support efforts to increase the number of electric vehicle charging units but also to find ways to make electric vehicle infrastructure better in the future.
The Government will invest $16.4 million to increase access to commercially ready electric vehicle fast-charging units as well as natural gas and hydrogen fuelling stations along key transportation corridors. In addition, $46.1 million will be invested to support the development and demonstration of next-generation electric vehicle charging infrastructure.
