Innovation is central to Hydro-Québec’s activities

As Québec’s largest supplier of electricity, Hydro-Québec works with the various stakeholders in the energy sector to face the challenges of electrifying the economy. By developing a close collaboration with all the players in the ecosystem, including start-ups and well-established companies, universities and associations, research centers and customers, Hydro-Québec will not only stimulate innovation and the development of expertise, but also promote the adoption of new technologies. This ambition is at the heart of Hydro-Québec’s Strategic Plan 2022–2026, which is structured around the following four major objectives:

Drive the efficient decarbonization of Québec.

Prepare our grid for tomorrow’s energy and technology needs.

Increase Québec’s collective prosperity.

Engage our customers, employees and partners in the achievement of our goals.

Innovation and mobilization

Innovation is at the heart of Hydro-Québec’s past, present and future. It is a key vector for the company’s long-term operability and Québec’s energy transition. It is therefore essential that we combine our efforts in innovation and R&D with those of the main players in the innovation ecosystem.
