Annual Report 2016

Hydro-Québec’s net income remained high in 2016, at $2,861 million, even as temperatures returned to near normal on the Québec market after two years marked by very cold winters. The company was able to capitalize on its commercial and operational expertise to export a record volume of electricity, which mitigated the impact of lower prices on energy markets. For a fourth consecutive year, Hydro-Québec’s contribution to the revenue of its sole shareholder, the Québec government, has exceeded the $4-billion mark.

Quarterly report 2016

Hydro-Québec: Record volume of net exports in the third quarter

The company posts net income of $306 million

For the quarter ended September 30, net income totaled $306 million. Hydro-Québec took advantage of several business opportunities on markets outside Québec, which resulted in a record volume of quarterly net electricity exports. This allowed the company to offset the decrease in prices on energy markets and to maintain its third-quarter net income above $300 million.

The difference compared to the $339-million net income posted in the third quarter of 2015 is mainly due to an increase in financial expenses attributable to exchange rate fluctuations.
