The development of electric vehicles and plug-in hybrids depends on the production of efficient and affordable batteries. Located in Varennes, the Center of Excellence in Transportation Electrification and Energy Storage is focused on developing efficient, cost-effective technologies that will increase the capacity of batteries without compromising their safety.

The Center’s objective is to market Hydro-Québec’s technologies, which are protected by 800 patents. It has also been tasked with creating new research partnerships and to continue developing new technologies.
