What is the energy transition?

The energy transition is based on access to new sources of sustainable energy. By increasing renewable energy options, the Québec of the future can gradually let go of energy sources that rely on fossil fuels.

The energy transition also relies on changes in our collective behavior so we can eliminate energy overconsumption and waste.

These are some of the ways Hydro-Québec is already fully engaged in the energy transition:


Energy output, which is nearly 100% clean and renewable


Contribution to transportation electrification


Energy efficiency programs
