For more details and day specific times of the conference go to: https://emc-mec.ca/ev2017ve/

Electric Mobility Canada invites you to the 8th annual national event for electric vehicles, taking place in Markham, Ontario from May 29th to June 1st, 2017. The EV/VÉ Conference and Trade Show is a highly respected event in the EV industry in Canada. Our Conference committees are working diligently to design a conference program that will bring the latest electric mobility technology trends to you.
The theme for the 2017 conference is “Smart e-Mobility”: tomorrow’s electric drive will consider the whole EV ecosystem, including optimal utilization of EV fleets, connected cars, autonomous electric vehicles, smart homes, smart grids, microgrids, smart charging, battery technology and many more revolutionary breakthroughs in mobility.
We are delighted that Powerstream (now Alectra inc.) is the conference host this year. For many years now, PowerStream has been an innovative leader in electric mobility: back in 2011, PowerStream took ownership of the first two Nissan LEAF cars ever delivered in Canada. In August 2014, they were the first in North America to deploy Vehicle-to-Home technology. A few months later, they installed the first publicly accessible DC fast charger at their Vaughan office. Last year, PowerStream partnered with the City of Markham and Nissan to install Ontario’s first municipally owned DC fast charger in Markham.

Hi GHEVA,

We are currently conducting a research survey for electric vehicle owners living in the Greater Toronto Area. We would very much appreciate if you could advertise this on your social media page. Our goal is to recruit participants by e-mailing us at this account.

The image is attached. If you could caption it “Plug’n Drive recruiting volunteers for GTHA focused electric vehicle owners survey - email evownersurvey@plugndrive.ca to participate” that would be much appreciated.

We would be happy to send our results to your group once the study is completed if you would like.

Best regards,

Dr. Josipa Petrunic
Principal Investigator
