Electric Vehicle Infrastructure

BCIT’s Smart Microgrid Applied Research Team is working on a research, development and demonstration (RD&D) initiatives aimed at solutions that will reduce barriers to the adoption of Electric Vehicles (EVs). These projects will build on a recently completed renewable (solar PV) energy generation, energy storage, and electric vehicle charging infrastructure project called Energy OASIS, located at BCIT’s Burnaby campus.

BCIT Electric Vehicle Charging Station Demonstration Project 

The BCIT Smart Microgrid Applied Research Team is involved in a research project to investigate efficient ways to retrofit existing Multi-Unit Residential Buildings (MURBs), strata and rental apartments, in the Greater Vancouver area with electric vehicle charging stations. The goal of the project is to provide demonstration sites that show how to develop a scalable plan for installing EV chargers in existing MURBs.
