The Régie de l’énergie and the Ministry of Economy, Innovation and Energy (MEIE), via InnovÉÉ, are granting $1.2 million to two collaborative research projects aimed at improving the reliability of transportation electricity in Quebec as part of the FiabilitÉÉ program.

Projects supported:

  • ÉTS and PLP Canada Ltd as part of the development of tools to strengthen the resilience of networks in the face of climatic hazards.
  • Laval University, Hydro-Québec and Opal-RT are working on dynamic estimation of the state of the network for optimized management.

These university-industry collaborations drive innovation for smarter, more sustainable networks.

“ The Régie de l’énergie is pleased to note the interest of the university community and the business community in research associated with the reliability of Quebec’s electricity transmission network. The supported projects will strengthen the resilience of this network. The electrification of the Quebec economy cannot be achieved without a reliable transportation network. The partnership with InnovÉÉ illustrates its commitment to contributing to Quebec’s energy transition, which is at the heart of its strategic plan.  »
