British Columbia Institute of Technology will be receiving $1.7M in funding from the Government of Canada, and additional funding to bring the total to $4.1M from BCIT, FLO | AddÉnergie, the City of New Westminster, IBX Data Systems, and Sun Country Highway to invest in electric vehicle (EV) adoption. Funding will support BCIT in expanding the EV Charging Network Management System, which was previously developed by a BCIT team, and to create solutions that will improve interoperability issues, grid efficiencies, and charging experience. “This investment from the Government of Canada for the Smart Microgrid project will help continue the research to find EV infrastructure solutions,” said Dr Kim Dotto, Dean Applied Research and Centre for Applied Research and Innovation.
