Let’s get plugged into zero emissions vehicles! Women in Renewable Energy (WiRE) is excited to announce the launch of the Plugging into Zero Emission Vehicles (ZEV) initiative, supported by a $225,000 investment through Natural Resources Canada’s Zero Emission Vehicle Awareness Initiative, Plug’n Drive, and many other amazing partners. WiRE is ready to help Canadians understand the ins and outs of owning a ZEV, and also what it takes to start a career in the booming ZEV industry!
This project aims to delve into reasons for any hesitation and gender gaps in ZEV ownership, barriers on starting careers in the ZEV industry, and to fill those gaps with education and opportunities that will encourage ZEV lifestyle, and help bring Canada many steps closer to a cleaner tomorrow!
“Zero-emission vehicles are helping Canadians to reduce emissions and save money on fuel while creating good jobs throughout the supply chain. Investing in zero-emission vehicles will put more Canadians in the driver’s seat on the road to a net-zero future and help achieve our climate goals.”
Honourable Jonathan Wilkinson,
Minister of Natural Resources
“The Government of Canada is supporting Canadians to accelerate to a net-zero future, including by supporting the purchase, manufacturing and charging of electric vehicles. I am pleased to announce new support for local organizations across the country to raise awareness about zero-emission vehicles to help Canadians make the switch.”
