Enabling Vehicle Fleet Electrification in British Columbia: Understanding the trends, barriers and opportunities

The barriers, trends and opportunities around using electric vehicles as commercial vehicles is not well understood. SFU, together with Fraser Basin Council, are researching the potential opportunities in deploying electric vehicles in commercial vehicle fleets in BC to provide policy advice and to identify the impacts and benefits of electrification. The outcomes of these studies will enable the government to establish policies to support electric vehicles for commercial fleets, allow automakers to better understand the use and operation of electric vehicles in commercial fleets and allow fleet managers to better identify where electric vehicles can save money. These studies will enable more electric vehicles on BC streets, reducing air pollution and greenhouse gas emissions.
