Propulsion Québec, the electric and smart transportation (EST) cluster, is pleased to announce a new partnership with Hydro-Québec, the Quebec government corporation that produces and distributes electricity. This one-year renewable partnership will allow Hydro-Québec to support the electrification of transport and the development of new mobility solutions and Propulsion Québec to benefit from the expertise and experience of this world leader in hydroelectricity and in large electricity networks.
For many years, Hydro-Québec's energy and expertise have revolutionized the transportation sector, while supporting the decarbonization of the province. Member since the creation of the cluster in 2017, Hydro-Québec is involved by sitting on the board of directors, in addition to being a key partner in the realization of several projects. Over the past three years, Hydro-Québec and Propulsion Québec have notably collaborated in the publication of the study of Lithium-ion Battery Sector – Developing a promising sector for Quebec's economy, the organization of the first IMPULSION MTL International Fleet Forum and the publication of ZÉRO ÉMISSION : How are bus and truck manufacturers positioned in North America ?, a portrait of the current and future North American offer of medium and heavy zero-emission vehicles.
With this strategic partnership, Hydro-Québec becomes a leading contributor of the cluster's activities, but more specifically, the study project « Feuille de route 2030 » for Quebec's electric and intelligent land transport ecosystem and the 2nd edition of the IMPULSION MTL International Fleet Forum. During the next year, Hydro-Québec will work closely with the electric and smart vehicle cluster on various studies and activities aimed at galvanizing the EST ecosystem.
Today, as a Propulsion Québec partner, Hydro-Québec is reaffirming its support and commitment to the ecosystem and continues to actively participate in the electrification of the Quebec economy.
