SaskPolytech, RRC Polytech, NAIT partner to build prairie EV infrastructure

November 3, 2022
Saskatchewan Polytechnic, Red River College Polytechnic, and the Northern Alberta Institute of Technology have partnered on an applied research project focused on Electric Vehicle (EV) infrastructure in the prairies. The project, funded by Natural Resources Canada's Zero Emission Vehicle Awareness Initiative, will use the institutions' collective expertise to research and raise awareness about charging options and show how to adapt the current infrastructure for Level 1 workplace charging. The institutions will also establish charging stations at their respective campuses, with SaskPolytech already having installed two for employee use. The institutions will draw on infrastructure that is already in place across Manitoba, Alberta, and Saskatchewan to implement EV charging in a cost-effective manner. The project also aims to build up a workforce in sustainable transportation infrastructure through student participation. SaskPoltech | CTV News (SK)
