In this webinar, examples of a community-led approach to regional EV charging networks were shared. Jen Grebeldinger, from the Community Energy Association presented their work on Accelerate Kootenays and Peaks To Prairies. These two projects from BC and Alberta highlight actions to accelerate EV adoption within and across rural communities. This webinar highlighted the impact such efforts can have on supporting EV adoption and readiness and advance co-benefits for rural communities in terms of tourism.
