• The increasing demand for electricity to charge EVs will challenge power suppliers in Canada
• It could overmatch even the best-equipped power company in Canada, a new study concludes.

This is the conclusion of a new study carried out by an intern at the Chair in Transportation Transformation of École Polytechnique/Université de Montréal, as reported initially by Radio-Canada.
