March 2021

This month’s EV Surge will be brief and to the point. It’s March, and that means the the Electric Vehicle Society 2020 Annual Report will be available very soon. The report highlights the broad range of activities that our members, chapters and affiliates initiated, promoted and participated in while facing the unprecedented challenges of 2020. Zoom meetings, emails and cell phones kept us in touch while members kept busy spreading the word about the EV advantage. As we move forward, it’s good to look in the rearview mirror and review our successes. The EVS Annual Report...Coming Soon!

"The Importance of

EV Policy in Canadas

Clean Energy


Come join us as we welcome Joanna Kyriazis to the webinar series.

Joanna works to develop and advance policy solutions that address climate change while promoting clean growth, with a specific focus on clean transportation. Based in Ottawa, she regularly connects with thought leaders, industry stakeholders, and policymakers at the federal level. Before joining Clean Energy Canada, Joanna worked as a management consultant helping businesses identify and manage climate change risks and opportunities. She also practiced as a lawyer advising governments and industry on climate change and energy law.

Canada has a car conundrum. Canadians drive the most polluting cars in the world due in part to a growing appetite for SUVs and trucks, and over the past 20 years, domestic carbon pollution from transportation has increased by nearly 30%. Over that same two-decade period, the number of vehicles being manufactured locally has fallen by 37%. Once a global top-five auto manufacturer, Canada now doesnt even crack the top 10. Joanna will discuss Clean Energy Canadas recent work on the solution to Canadas car conundrum—zero-emission vehicles—and how, with a deliberate approach for drivers and industry, Canadas can both cut pollution and set our auto sector up to compete in the global economy.
