Industrial Systems

The Industrial Systems Program covers a wide range of measures to make industrial facilities, processes and electromechanical systems more energy-efficient.

Important notice: Changes to Industrial Systems Program as of May 1, 2015
More information

Full, flexible range of assistance

Graphic describing the energy efficiency cycle that is part of an overall vision of continuous improvement. The endlessly repeating cycle has three stages: identification and planning, improving and following up.

Program and energy efficiency cycle

The Industrial Systems Program’s five components cover a plant’s entire industrial energy efficiency cycle, from planning through improvements to follow-up.



Program benefits

  • +Financial assistance tailored to project type and size
  • +Recurring electricity savings
  • +Lower operating costs
  • +Faster payback
  • +Wide range of eligible measures
  • +Better competitive position
  • 1

    Identify and plan

    Stage in which energy management opportunities are identified.

    First things first

    Perform energy audits in the plant.

    Taking it further

    Take advantage of Hydro-Québec’s support for analysis.

    Electricity consumption analysis

    Get financial assistance to review the design of a new facility from an energy efficiency point of view, analyze your current facility’s electricity consumption or optimize your processes and electromechanical systems to determine which measures to implement.

    Getting off to a good start

    Get up to $25,000 per analysis or $100,000 per site for all your analysis projects.

  • 2

    Improve

    Stage at which upgrades, major retrofits or projects involving new technologies are carried out.

    First things first

    First implement management, housekeeping or operational measures with a payback period of less than a year that can be defined under the Electricity Consumption Analysis component or the Electricity Management Systems component.

    Taking it further

    Take advantage of Hydro-Québec’s investment support.

    Prescriptive measures

    Get financial assistance to implement predefined energy efficiency measures involving lighting, variable-frequency drives (VFDs), compressed air, water chilling and industrial refrigeration.

    • As of May 1, 2015, up to $500,000 per site to implement a set of predefined energy efficiency measures involving lighting, VFDs, compressed air and water chilling.
    • As of May 1, 2015, up to $500,000 per site to implement a set of predefined energy efficiency measures involving industrial refrigeration.

    Retrofit

    Get financial assistance to reduce specific electricity consumption—while maintaining or increasing production volume—as part of a plant modernization or retrofit project.

    Rate L: Get up to $1 million per project.

    Other rates: Get up to $500,000 per project.

    New Plant, Expansion or Addition of Production Lines

    Get financial assistance to reduce specific electricity consumption when expanding a plant, adding production lines or building a new plant.

    Rate L: Get up to $2 million per project.

    Other rates: Get up to $1 million per project.

    Follow up

    Stage at which to choose the significant energy uses for which to monitor the impact on electrical energy efficiency of measures implemented, in accordance with your priorities.

    First things first

    Implement an energy management process.

  • 4

    Adopt an overall vision of continuous energy efficiency improvement

    Implement systematic electricity management practices that foster a culture of energy efficiency and generate ongoing electricity savings by means of operational control.

    Taking it further

    Initiate the energy efficiency process.

    Electricity Management Systems

    Get financial assistance to implement up an electricity management system and to purchase and install continuous measuring instruments in order to identify potential electricity savings opportunities, implement measures and quantify the impacts on an ongoing basis.

    Get a cumulative maximum from May 1, 2015, until the end of the Program of $150,000 per site or per service contract for the purchase and installation of continuous measuring instruments and the implementation of an electricity management system, to which may be added additional services for eligible buildings for which Rate L is payable.
