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.
