In the Summer and Fall 2015, the authors studied the business case for investing in a Direct Current Fast Charging (DCFC) infrastructure in Canada for the benefit of the Canadian Council of Ministers of the Environment. This paper summarizes our research findings in four areas: Cost of DCFCs, expected utilization of DCFCs, benefits and co-benefits of DCFC stations, evaluation of the business case for DCFCs across Canada.
