Collaborative Energy


We believe that together, we will positively impact the future of society by developing solutions that seemed impossible just yesterday. Whether you’re a startup company, a teaching institution, a citizen or a well-established business, you can tap into this collaborative energy.

Collective Energy: Where our collective dreams are taking shape

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.

Lac-Mégantic’s microgrid: An innovative project for an engaged community

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.
