Background
 
The University recently installed its first electronic vehicle charger (EVC) by the main entrance to the International Centre at its east campus in St. Catharines, Ont.
 
The EVC unit, which was partially gifted to the University by Sun Country Highway, is available to students, staff, faculty, as well as local residents and visitors to Niagara. Sun Country is a Canadian-owned company that works to raise awareness about electric vehicle infrastructure and zero-emission transportation.
 
“At Brock we’re always looking to adopt new tools and technologies to help make our campus more sustainable,” says Tom Saint-Ivany, Associate Vice-President, Facilities Management, and chair of the University’s Sustainability Co-ordinating Committee.
 

When Brock’s LEED Silver Certified International Centre was being constructed in 2009, North American automobile manufacturers were forecasting the production of electric vehicles within a couple of years. In response to this announcement the building was designed to accommodate future EVC stations.
