Natural Resource Canada will award nearly $2 million to Mogile Technologies to develop two EV infrastructure projects in Quebec. Funded through the Green Infrastructure Program, the projects will collect data to be used in future Canadian clean energy programs.
The first project includes an investment of $1.136 million to test a technology designed to reduce demand on the power grid during peak charging periods. The goal is to allow utilities to adjust power output and pricing based on predicted load use.
The second project will include an investment of $861,000 to develop a roaming system that will allow drivers to pay for charging at any station using a single account.
Mogile CEO Simon Ouellette said, “To get more Canadians on the roads in EVs right now, we have to simplify the charging experience. To make these choices ubiquitous in the future, we need to build an infrastructure that optimizes available energy resources. With our ChargeHub Passport payment solution and our ChargeHub Central infrastructure management system, we will do just that.”
Minister of Natural Resources Amarjeet Sohi said, “The Government of Canada will continue to invest in the infrastructure needed to give drivers easy, fast-charging options for low-emission vehicles, giving Canadians cleaner options when they drive.”
