Powering Plug-in Electric Vehicles with Renewable Energy Supply in BC

From 2011 to 2016 SFU-START collaborated with researchers at the University of British Columbia, the University of Victoria, and the British Columbia Institute of Technology to investigate a number of research questions related to powering plug-in electric vehicles with renewable energy supply. The final report summarizing the outputs of this research activity funded through NRCan’s ecoENERGY Innovation Initiative is available for download in both English and French.
