Government Agencies

Government Agency Members (Municipal, Provincial, Federal) gain the opportunity to engage in, learn from, and influence CUTRIC projects locally and nationally to achieve local environmental objectives through technology deployment and demonstration efforts.

CUTRIC assists local, regional and federal governments in achieving their sustainability goals through technically-informed technology projects that support local environmental policy goals and national job creation goals.

CUTRIC can support your government’s Transportation Master Plan, Smart City Strategy or other mobility and transit strategic efforts.

Specific Benefits include:

  • Access to heavily discounted fees for use of CUTRIC’s trademarked RoutΣ.i™ and deCarbonify™ modelling tools for route-based and block-based alternative propulsion and energy systems simulation and modelling, as well as greenhouse gas (GHG) relative measure analysis (vis-à-vis other cities)
    • These tools help governments simulate and predict battery and H2 electric bus performance, charging system performance, energy storage integration performance, electricity and H2 fuel costs, GHG emissions (tailpipe or well-to-wheel), total cost of ownership (TOC), and other key variables
    • CUTRIC researchers can also help governments engage in vehicle supply equipment localization and mapping, life cycle assessments (LCAs), and return-on-investment predictions in local communities
    • Access for government Members – under Non-Disclosure Agreements – to modelling results for Canadian and American cities as available
  • Access to Members-only technical sessions and project planning workshops with transit agencies and cities focused on low-carbon smart mobility commercialization projects
  • Access to Members-only technical sessions and project planning workshops with transit agencies and cities focused on low-carbon smart mobility commercialization projects
  • Access to all CUTRIC consultation reports from Members-only technical planning sessions, including the 2019-2020 (Volume I launch year) CUTRIC White Paper Series on electric bus, hydrogen fuel cell bus and connected and autonomous shuttle technologies
  • Access to support for the development of novel business plans in the form of Innovation P3© models which detail a strategy for asset acquisition, operations and maintenance as well as financing (with possible design and build components) to support upfront capital investments and long-term operations of low carbon smart-mobility commercialization and deployments projects nationwide
  • Receipt of up-to-date and dynamic education on new technologies in low-carbon smart mobility emanating from competitive vendors or potential new suppliers within the national and North American eco-system 
  • Access to cutting edge CUTRIC Technical Reports, including CUTRIC’s annual CUTRIC White Paper Series on electric bus, hydrogen fuel cell bus and connected and autonomous shuttle technologies (Volume 1, 2019-2020)
  • Access to data collection-focused e-bus, H2 bus, and smart vehicle Steering Committees allied to CUTRIC commercialization projects as “Observers” under Non-Disclosure and special IP Agreements with CUTRIC project partners
  • Access to CUTRIC’s useful Membership Directory with detailed Member Designate contact information for the whole CUTRIC consortium
  • Access to strategic insights into the ongoing research and IP outputs emanating from CUTRIC-funded e-bus, H2-bus and smart vehicle research at more than two dozen universities and colleges across Canada, as captured in CUTRIC’s National Academic Advisory Committees (NAACs) for e-bus, H2-bus and smart vehicle research
  • Access to introductions to specific industry partners to learn about new technologies and solutions offered by Industry Members
  • Development support for the composition and sharing of city-led technical specifications for e-bus, H2 bus and smart vehicle Performance Measures, which government Members and cities can use to asses systems performance during and post-deployment on roads
