Developing a strategic approach to enabling electric vehicle technology in the City of Ottawa
Electric Mobility Adoption and Prediction (EMAP) combines sophisticated market research
methodologies with detailed grid integration and impact analyses. The EMAP methodology is a tool of
predictive analysis, capable of improving the efficiency of capital investments in electricity distribution
system assets and electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure by ensuring that they align with the
needs of early adopter markets.
This report summarizes the process, findings and implications emerging from the Ottawa EMAP study.
It also proposes a set of strategic objectives and recommendations intended to prepare Hydro Ottawa
to manage and support the use of EVs in its service area.
