PublishedNovember 10, 2013

Informing the development of an electric vehicle deployment strategy for the City of Toronto.

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 application of the EMAP methodology to the City of Toronto. It includes maps of the city with details of the likely locations for deployment based on the market research and local electricity distribution assessment, as well as information that addresses the communications needs of residents and stakeholders. The report also identifies opportunities for ongoing capacity-building to manage and support the use of EVs in the city.
