Electrification and Grid Integration
Driven by zero and low-emissions baseload power and flexible capacity solutions, Canada’s electricity system has an opportunity to respond and support an increasingly electrified and highly efficient energy system. Ambitious efforts to understand and act on the specific regional opportunities for electricity grid expansion and integration are limited. The Accelerator will tackle this challenge.

The Transition Accelerator Launches ‘Canada Grid,’ A New Initiative Focused on Accelerating Electricity Grid Integration to Power Canada’s Net-Zero Future
To reach our net-zero climate targets, North Americans need to more than double the capacity of the electricity grid.
Reaching net zero greenhouse gas emissions will require major changes in the large-scale systems we use to meet societal needs, such as the way we produce and distribute energy or move people and goods.
The purpose of this report is to provide a simple tool to help those concerned with policy and
investment decisions to achieve net zero greenhouse gas emissions in Canada.
The Northeast Electrification and Decarbonization Alliance (NEDA) is proposed as a collaborative process among stakeholders in the eight separately operated balancing areas making up the eastern Canadian and northeastern U.S. electrical system.
Regional integration in the electricity sector across the North American Northeast can bring substantial benefits in reducing greenhouse…
