Drive Green 2021

Drive Green Ottawa is a celebration of Zero Emissions Vehicles (ZEVs). This week-long event ran from September 26th – October 1st 2021, and demystified ZEVs through a series of events and activities that highlighted electric options, opportunities, how to purchase, incentives, charging options and more.

Drive Green Week Recap:

Daily Speaker Series: Experts from the City of Ottawa, Envari, EVCO, Hydro Ottawa, and Stuckless Consulting joined us to discuss a range of topics, from charging technology, infrastructure, and financial incentives to micromobility and why owning a ZEV is so great!

Pop-up EV Expo: Folks from across the city joined us at 4 different locations throughout the day to chat with EV owners and check out their vehicles.

Podcast: EnviroCentre’s Green Room featured guest Raymond Leury, President of the Electric Vehicle Council of Ottawa.

Drive Green Bingo: Drive Green Week participants joined in on the fun, searching for electric vehicle and infrastructure spots in their own neighbourhoods!  

Meet the ZEVs: We interviewed some of Ottawa’s most avid electric vehicle owners about their favourite parts of owning a ZEV.

Did you know that the average Canadian driver can reduce their car’s greenhouse gas emissions by as much as 90% by switching to an electric vehicle (Plug’n Drive). 

Drive Green Ottawa is presented by EnviroCentre in partnership with the City of Ottawa and with special thanks to Envari and EVCO.
