ZEVIP offers up to $5million per EV Charging infrastructure project

In an effort to achieve federal zero emissions vehicle (ZEV) targets, The Government has announced $130 million in funding over five years to build the charging infrastructure required to enable Canadians to make the shift to electric vehicles. This funding will aim to support the deployment of level 2 and higher charging and refuelling stations, in addition to strategic hydrogen infrastructure for commercial fleets.

As Canada’s turnkey EV charger solution, SparkEV is excited for this pivotal time for Canadian travel. With the support of the federal government program, our country’s leaders are removing one of the greatest barriers to electric vehicles becoming the norm and effectively paving the way for Canadians to confidently make the switch to electric vehicles. With the ZEVIP announcement, it’s even easier for you to be a part of it. 

Here’s the full update from the Transportation and Alternative Fuels Division, Natural Resources Canada:

“Natural Resources Canada is now accepting project proposals for funding consideration under the Zero-Emission Vehicle Infrastructure Program (ZEVIP). This second RFP targets projects for electric vehicle charging and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs), workplaces and for light-duty vehicle fleets.

Funded through Budget 2019, the ZEVIP supports the deployment of a network of zero-emission vehicle chargers (Level 2 and higher) and hydrogen refuelling infrastructure in more localized areas where Canadians live, work and play. Support will also be available for strategic projects for electric vehicles and/or hydrogen infrastructure for corporate fleets, last-mile delivery fleets, and mass transit.

The Program expects to launch several RFPs targeting one or more infrastructure categories (multi-unit residential buildings, workplaces, public places, on-street, light-duty vehicle fleets, medium and heavy-duty vehicle fleets and mass transit) each year.
