Electric Vehicle Integration

The Electric Vehicle Integration (EVI) initiative is intended to inform actions the OEB may take to ensure the efficient integration of electric vehicles (EVs) with the transmission and distribution systems. The OEB will undertake this work with three lines of effort:

  • First, the OEB will conduct a survey of industry stakeholders to identify barriers to the deployment of EV charging infrastructure. This survey will inform, in part, subsequent work related to guidance that distributors may require for system investments for EV integration.
  • Second, the OEB will review demand charges and the way in which these may be designed to appropriately allocate costs while facilitating the efficient integration of EVs.
  • Third, the OEB will review existing requirements related to EV connections, to determine whether there is a need for changes in these requirements to provide additional consistency across the province.

These three workstreams will inform subsequent work to remove barriers to the integration of EVs with the transmission and distribution systems.

Stay tuned for more details.

    In late November, the OEB plans to launch a survey of electricity distributors and EV charging station service providers. If you are an EV charging station service provider that has not yet been contacted for inclusion in this survey, please email EVintegration@oeb.ca by November 18th, 2022, so that your contact information can be shared with Guidehouse, the consultant engaged to complete this survey.

    Electricity distributors will be contacted through their Regulatory Affairs contact.
