The Road to Transit Electrification

March 22, 2022 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

Utilities play a key role in planning for future transportation electrification and supporting private sector investment. The shift to transportation electrification will have major impacts on the daily operations and functions of utility providers and rate regulators, and capacity of existing systems. The way in which customers will consume electricity will change which provides challenges and opportunities for utilities, along with the impacts on the grid and how utilities manage peak demand.

This webinar will look at examining which jurisdictions and utilities have done well in planning for electrification and what can be learned from those areas. The conversation will also investigate what enables transportation electrification planning. Finally, it will delve into how this can be adopted in the Canadian context in different jurisdictions.
