The Conversation published an op-ed about electric vehicles in urban environments by Jerome Mayaud, a UBC postdoctoral fellow in the School of Community and Regional Planning. In the piece titled “How growing cities can support at-home electric vehicle charging,” Mayaud contends that policy is key.
“As vehicle electrification gains ground in Canada and elsewhere, we will need policies that do a better job of recognizing the obstacles and opportunities around residential charging. The high densification and mobility challenges experienced in B.C.’s urban areas illustrates the challenges faced by many modern cities,” wrote Mayaud, whose position is funded by the Pacific Institute for Climate Solutions and the Cascadia Urban Analytics Corridor.
