Re: This Oil and Gas Road Map Could Lead Planners Astray; International Energy Agency's latest report is a rallying call for politicians to act on climate change but its projections illustrate why the coming transition could be full of potholes

 Yes, you are preaching to the choir about grid expansion.    I've quoted Elon a few times who forecasts we need the grid to expand 3 fold.   
 
That and charging stations everywhere isn't happening without Government help but I'm encouraged by the 500K charging stations Biden has proposed in the new infrastructure bill.   
 
While cold weather that you deal with in Canada certainly reduces range, battery technology is at the point where 500+ mile range is possible.    The average range people drive daily in the summer is 30.6 miles.    500+ is actually overkill no matter where you live.     
 
Tesla featured their new 4680 cells last year which will propel their plaid+ 520 miles.   Lucid is debuting a similar range.    
 
In comparison, my first Tesla had the longest range of any BEV and that was 265 miles.     That gets me to anywhere in SoCal.    I only charge away from home on long distance trips and there's more Supercharger locations than you can shake a stick at.
