A Report to the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO)

Environmental stewardship and accountability in Ontario has expanded to include the impacts of energy use. Recently, transportation energy use has been added to the reporting mandate of the Environmental Commissioner of Ontario (ECO). Pollution Probe produced this scoping report to help inform the ECO on the implications of increased penetration of electric vehicles (EVs) in Ontario, focusing on the potential for EV technologies to achieve reductions of greenhouse gas emissions and air pollutants without disturbing the reliability of the electricity grid.
