May 26, 2022 | By Anthony Capkun

May 26, 2022 – Tugliq Energy Co. has received over $2.6 million from Ottawa’s Green Infrastructure–Electric Vehicle Infrastructure Demonstration Program (EVID) to “address barriers to electric vehicle infrastructure in Northern Quebec”.

Specifically, the money aims to help Tugliq demonstrate and assess the use of EV technology and charging stations tied to a hybrid diesel-renewable smart grid.

“For 10 years—and in the wake of today’s announcement—Tugliq is proud to support and accompany its industrial clients in the North, as well as their Aboriginal and government partners, in achieving greenhouse gas emission reduction and net zero targets,” said Laurent Abbatiello, Tugliq’s president & CEO.

For its part, Tugliq is investing more than $1.8 million in the project.

“We are proud to invest with you, and to develop and deploy innovative solutions tailored to Côte-Nord’s industrial needs, especially those targeting extreme remote environments,” Abbatiello added.

The project is expected to reduce GHG emissions and protect ecosystems while also providing Inuit who are attending the Arctic Remote Energy Networks Academy with job opportunities through the operation and maintenance training of EV charging stations.
