There is a $3 – $20 million funding opportunity available through the Energy Innovation Program (EIP) for the next generation Electric Vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in Canada. Please see a comprehensive snapshot of the EIP program below:
The Energy Innovation Program (EIP) has received $46.1 million in funding over 2 years through Budget 2016, to support the demonstration of next-generation electric vehicle (EV) charging infrastructure in Canada.
The Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstration Component will undertake new demonstrations to reduce the costs, understand the impacts and address potential hurdles for a broader deployment of next-generation charging infrastructure for electric vehicles.
Demonstration projects must be located in Canada. Eligible applicants are: legal entities validly incorporated or registered in Canada, including companies, electricity and gas utilities, industry associations, research associations, standards organizations, aboriginal and community groups, Canadian academic institutions, and provincial, territorial, regional and municipal governments and their departments and agencies.
Projects must request/require a minimum of $3 million of Energy Innovation Program funding per project and the funding request must not exceed $20 million. Please note that the maximum EIP funding per project will not exceed 50% of total project costs. Total Canadian government assistance (federal, provincial/territorial, regional and municipal governments and their departments and agencies, not including investment or funding from Crown or municipally-owned utilities) will not exceed 75% of total project costs, except for applicants that are also Canadian Government Organizations (as defined above), in which case, their own contributions will not count towards the total Canadian government assistance.
