Charging Ahead Towards Lower Emissions

If you want to know what Ontario’s largest source of greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions is, look no further than your carport or curbside. And if you want to know who’s best positioned to help reduce that source – through large scale electrification – look no further than the EDA membership. In Ontario, transportation accounts for fully 38 per cent of all GHGs. Fortunately, there’s huge potential to cut those emissions through wider use of electric vehicles and electrification of mass transit. And that’s beginning to happen. But it has major implications for the electricity supply/demand balance and pricing, and for grid management more broadly. That’s why transportation is the focal point of the first of what is likely to be a series of EDA position papers on electrification. It elaborates on the need for LDCs to play a central role in providing charging and other infrastructure, and in working with the relevant agencies on rate design. Getting that right will n ...
