Electric Vehicles: A baseline study and analysis for a regional strategy

Back to Resources

Currently, across Fraser Health, Providence Health Care, Provincial Health Services Authority and Vancouver Coastal Health there is an opportunity to develop an integrated and collaborative strategy for the future of electric vehicles.

The inevitable increase in demand for electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure, as well as the need to decrease organizational and regional greenhouse gas emissions, is an opportunity to position these four health organizations in a leadership role amongst B.C. Public Sector Organizations to drive this societal shift, through the provision of accessible EV infrastructure.

The expected outcomes from this study and analysis include:

  • Clarity around the current status of EV chargers and infrastructure across the four health organizations
  • Understanding stakeholder level of interest in increasing EV accessibility/availability
  • Understanding of risk (in not developing a regional strategy)
  • Direction for the future of EV charging in the health organizations
  • Engagement with all stakeholders and clarity of roles, responsibilities, and priorities

While it is important to encourage EV use and adoption by staff, the role that these charging stations are playing needs to be considered, and ultimately the larger transportation system as a whole needs to be considered.
