BCIT Electric Vehicle Charging Station Demonstration ProjectThe BCIT Smart Microgrid Applied Research Team is involved in a research project to investigate efficient ways to retrofit existing multi-unit residential buildings (MURBs), stratas 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. For the selected MURBs, BCIT and their electrical engineers will:
- Review the building’s electrical capacity for adding EV chargers.
- Develop the best plan for the building to install EV chargers, with the goal of installing chargers for parking stalls, and provide the plan to the Strata Council or apartment building owner.
- Using the engineered plan, purchase and install the first 6 EV chargers.
For more details please see the document entitled Do You Need Electric Vehicle Charging Stations in Your Building?
Thank you for your interest. We are no longer accepting applications. We are in the process of reviewing applications received as July 24, 2019. Potential Strata locations will be contacted shortly.
