The OUR, in executing its regulatory responsibilities, recognizes the importance of the emerging Electric Vehicle (EV) mobility technology to the Jamaican consumers, the economy and the impact that large scale EV uptake may have on the operation of the electricity sector. In this regard, the OUR formed a working group in 2019 July (the “Working Group”), tasked with formulating regulatory and policy recommendations to facilitate consultations with its key stakeholders. The OUR considers it critical to engage all affected stakeholders to allow for their contributions to the shaping of the Government of Jamaica’s (GOJ’s) EV policy objectives, and to effectively raise the level of consumer awareness regarding EVs.
