In spring 2021, we asked Quebecers to imagine Québec’s energy future with us. Collective Energy is an invitation to reflect together on three key areas linked to electrifying Québec: the green economy, sustainable mobility and responsible energy use. A total of 26,855 people participated in the consultation and more than 15,000 ideas emerged.
In the wake of the 2013 rail disaster, the city of Lac-Mégantic looked to the future and chose to rebuild its downtown core by positioning itself as a leader in the energy transition in rural communities. Their outlook was in line with Hydro-Québec’s vision, and the very first microgrid in the province was created through close collaboration over the years.
The Collab Space showcases initiatives that give voice to Quebecers who want to have their say in our reflections and projects. It currently includes the Hydro & Me Panel and the Hydro Lab. Other initiatives will soon be added.
Hydro‑Québec is committed to the community. The interests of the communities throughout Québec are a top priority for us. We carry out all of our projects in collaboration with the host communities and the stakeholders involved. Their ideas and interests are at the heart of our innovations. Looking resolutely toward the future, Hydro‑Québec aims for more collective and inclusive innovation to ensure a successful energy transition
