Project Title: Electric vehicle infrastructure design, optimization, and emission evaluations toward a full-scale net-zero transportation sector
The project will address the growing challenges, strategies and future vision of electric vehicles. It will also assess the development approaches toward zero-emission transportation and society.
The research project is funded by NSERC Alliance Mission Grant.
Transportation accounts for around 25% of Canada's greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
Less than 6% of electric chargers are in the prairie region which makes EVs problematic for long trips.
Charging queuing and cold weather are major concerns for urban EV travels.
Canada’s mandate for net-zero by 2035 yet EVs still make up fewer than 5% of Canadian passenger vehicles.
Study electric vehicles energy demand and distribution
Analyze urban electric vehicles travel and queuing congestion
Design long-distance electric vehicles travel and road infrastructure
Assess GHG mitigations with electric vehicles penetrations
