Canadian government invests $7m in electric vehicles
Quebec company AddEnergie is to receive up to $7m to develop advanced electric-vehicle charging stations across Canada.
The funding will see more than 1,000 new charging stations installed across Canada by 2019 and to develop the next generation of fast-charging stations and other innovative technologies that will help get more charging stations in homes, businesses, and cities.
Catherine McKenna, Minister of Environment and Climate Change, said: “Electric cars are becoming cheaper and more efficient and are part of the solution to fight climate change. By investing in charging stations, our government can make these cars an easier choice for Canadians.”
