NACITE: May Luncheon – Charging Stations and More
May 1, 2019 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pm MDT
CASE! ACES! One of the pillars of any “smart transportation” or “new mobility” plan is the “E” for electric. And one of the fundamental elements of electric-powered mobility is the need for new types of infrastructure such as charging stations — where should they be located? how far to the next one? public
or private? Level 2 or DC Fast Charger? Should public EV charging be free? And what about e-Bikes?
This presentation will share recent project work completed for the Capital Region District in Victoria, BC, and illustrate some of the leading-edge directions in EV infrastructure, including Edmonton’s and Calgary’s strategies for electrification of mobility. The presentation will also outline the key barriers to e-bike ownership and how municipalities can address these barriers through policy and regulation.
This month’s luncheon is sponsored by:
