CEV Infrastructure Deployment Programme

Last updated: 15 February 2023

The CEV Infrastructure Deployment Programme invested CAD 6.84 million in electric vehicle charging stations and upgrading existing hydrogen fuelling stations through the following instruments: 

  • a Community Charging Infrastructure Fund administered by the Fraser Basin Council; 
  • a LiveSmart BC Residential Rebate program administered by the Ministry of Energy and Mines; 
  • a LiveSmart BC Multi Unit Residential Building (MURB) Electric Vehicle Charging Program and a Building Owners and Managers Association (BOMA) Clean Connect Multi-Owner Tenanted Building (MOTB) Program administered by LiveSmart BC and BOMA respectively; 
  • a Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC) Station program administered by BC Hydro; 
  • Hydrogen Infrastructure administered by Powertech Labs; and 
  • A Charge & Go Vancouver Trial administered by the City of Vancouver. 

A portion of the funding from the Infrastructure Deployment Programme called the “Capacity Building Fund” was used to support general infrastructure design, academic research, curriculum development, and outreach on clean energy vehicles and infrastructure.

In 2015, the programme was replaced by the CleanBC – Go Electric EV Charger Rebate Programme.
