Subjectelectric drive transportation; Technology Roadmap (TRM)
AbstractThis paper presents a collective perspective on the evolution of electric mobility in Canada and the recommended process to build momentum within the government. Also discussed is the rationale for the integration of efforts, as well as the overall future direction of the industry. This paper also summarizes specific electric drive transportation activities of the seven departments and the EMC, which include the creation of a national directory of electric mobility resources and a Technology Roadmap (TRM) currently underway. Technology roadmapping is then explored in more detail, highlighting its ability to engage government and industry to work together to define goals to achieve electric drive transportation and identify pathways to address technology, market and regulatory needs. Clearly, the core strength of the TRM process lies within the interdependencies and influence that each department has on outcomes. And lastly, the paper outlines long-term perspectives; one common goal of these diverse departments is the development of an enhanced R&D base of electric drive technologies for the transfer and commercialization of these new technologies in Canada, with the potential for export sales worldwide.
