Every three years, Hydro‑Québec publishes an Electricity Supply Plan that forecasts the Québec market’s demand for the next 10 years and outlines how it expects to meet this demand. The Plan is filed with the Régie de l’énergie and is reviewed in each of the two subsequent years. It covers the needs of customers served both by the main grid and by off-grid systems.

The Electricity Supply Plan 2023-2032 was published on November 1, 2022.

The company also published a document titled Survol des ressources énergétiques d’Hydro‑Québec, which summarizes the electricity procurement process, the expected growth in energy and capacity needs, as well as the resources available to it and the strategies and initiatives it has developed to optimize use of these resources and meet the growing needs of the Québec market in the coming years.

Consultation of the power generation industry

From June 22 to July 12, 2020, Hydro‑Québec held consultations on electricity procurement with representatives of the power generation industry, with the aim of adapting its processes in such a way as to best meet the Québec market’s future needs while taking into account the power producers’ opinions and expertise.

Topics addressed included the evolution of power generation technologies, the regulatory framework governing electricity supply, lessons learned from previous calls for tenders, and industry interest in a new procurement process.
