CUTRIC Power Providers Working Group: Consultation Session #1

Dear CUTRIC-CRITUC Members and Canadian electricity utility stakeholders,

CUTRIC-CRITUC’s National Power Providers Transit Electrification Working Group (“Power Providers Working Group”) has been formed to focus on solving technology and policy challenges impeding the widespread introduction of high-powered overhead charging stations for opportunity charged electric buses, as well as high-powered and low-powered overhead and plug-in systems for depot charged electric buses.

The Power Providers Working Group is tasked with addressing grid-side technology requirements including potential energy storage solutions, as well as energy systems regulations and policies, such as electricity tariffs for transit and ownership rights for charging systems among utilities, which shape and affect the electrification of Canada’s transit buses today.

The Power Providers Working Group will also assess the value of potential carbon pricing mechanisms -- provincially and federally across Canada -- on the design, funding and financial sustainability of ubiquitous electric transit initiatives that integrate high- and low-powered charging systems with energy storage solutions (of variable capacities), renewable energy sources, and emissions reduction credit schemes.

Canadian electricity utility stakeholders interested in the electrification of bus technologies across Canada are invited to attend the first Technical Planning Session #1 of CUTRIC-CRITUC’s National Power Providers Transit Electrification Working Group scheduled for October 3rd2018.

CUTRIC-CRITUC’s National Power Providers Transit Electrification Working Group is being organized in the interests of our innovation champion transit members, including a total of 23 transit agencies and transit operators across Canada such as TransLink, Calgary Transit, Winnipeg Transit, Toronto Transit Commission, Brampton Transit, York Region Transit, Metrolinx, and Société de transport de Trois-Rivières among others.

We look forward to welcoming you to this national integration effort aimed at disrupting the transit industry with ubiquitous, standardized, interoperable transit electrification technologies and rational, appropriate, modernized utility policies.

The Electrification of Transportation: When Will "the Future" Arrive?

How we move people and transport goods is constantly evolving in response to technology, government policy, costs and changes to infrastructure. For most of us, the idea of the electrification of transportation transcended the pages of science fiction novels ages ago, and yet implementation on a large scale has remained elusive. Now, however, Ontario’s Climate Change Action Plan has put transportation squarely at the centre of the province’s greenhouse gas reduction strategy.

What does the electrification of transportation mean for Ontario’s energy sector? Join our speakers as they discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with:

  • Increased use of electric cars
  • Commercial, residential and en route charging stations
  • Electric transit buses*

JOINT ENBRIDGE-CUTRIC CNG RNG EDUCATION SESSION & INNOVATION WORKSHOP

The day is divided into two sessions. Participants must register separately for each session.

The morning session is designed specifically for transit authorities and aims to educate decision-makers in CNG-RNG technologies and their relevance for urban transit.

Dr. Josipa Petrunic (CUTRIC) will facilitate the afternoon session. The session will build upon the outcomes of the first CUTRIC-Enbridge CNG-RNG innovation workshop held in March 2016. The afternoon session will focus on preliminary roadmapping recommendations from industry stakeholders to federal and provincial governments vis-à-vis innovation projects in CNG and RNG transportation technologies.

Transit authority members interested mainly in the morning session are also welcome to attend the afternoon session.
