A diplomatic EV-lution

Helping an embassy lead the charge to net zero.

The story

Going electric is one of the best ways to reduce your greenhouse gas emissions. But it can be hard to know where to start.

This was the case for a large diplomatic mission located in Ottawa. With climate change being its top foreign policy priority, the embassy wanted to lead by example. It wanted to align its Canadian operations around its commitment to decarbonize.

An important step was to electrify its fleet and add EV chargers to the embassy and its residences in major cities across Canada.

But installing EV infrastructure isn’t always a rinse-and-repeat approach; several factors have to be accounted for, from the age, condition and location of a building’s electric vault to the building’s energy capacity.

In this case, it was especially important to be the least invasive as possible when installing the chargers; several of its buildings hold historical importance.

The main residence in Ottawa, for example, dates back to the mid-1800s. It was important to preserve the integrity of both its structure and aesthetics.

The customer needed an efficient way to connect an EV charger to the electrical room while drilling through as few walls as possible.

It also needed an EV solution at the embassy that would suit its current needs while being adaptable if charging demand increases.

For this installation, they required a network charger capable of power-sharing so it can easily be converted to a dual-head system to maximize the investment.

The embassy’s top priorities are ensuring people’s safety and carrying out its mission. So, selecting a partner they could rely on was essential.

For all its buildings across Canada, the embassy worked with Envari to help them find the best solution based on each site’s unique layout, charging demands, data requirements and preferred charging location. A small but significant step toward exemplifying – and accelerating – a net-zero future.
