    Electric Mobility Canada invites you to the 8th annual national event for electric vehicles, taking place in Markham, Ontario from May 29th to June 1st, 2017. The EV/ Conference and Trade Show is a highly respected event in the EV industry in Canada. Conference committees are working diligently to design a conference program that will bring the latest electric mobility technology trends to you.

    The theme for the 2017 conference is “Smart e-Mobility”: tomorrow’s electric drive will consider the whole EV ecosystem, including optimal utilization of EV fleets, connected cars, autonomous electric vehicles, smart homes, smart grids, microgrids, smart charging, battery technology and many more revolutionary breakthroughs in mobility.

    PowerStream (now Alectra Energy Solutions) is the conference host this year. For many years, PowerStream has been an innovative leader in electric mobility: back in 2011, PowerStream took ownership of the first two Nissan LEAF cars ever delivered in Canada. In August 2014, they were the first in North America to deploy Vehicle-to-Home technology. A few months later, they installed the first publicly accessible DC fast charger at their Vaughan office. Last year, PowerStream partnered with the City of Markham and Nissan to install Ontario’s first municipally owned DC fast charger in Markham.
