description

Hydro-Québec manages one of the largest power grids on the continent. It is among the most profitable, the least expensive, and the greenest. With a stunning renewable energy rate of 99.8%, Quebec has two-generation advance on places like California and Ontario. Combining a reporters’ style with thought, philosophy, and a touch of humour, Julie Barlow and Jean-Benoît Nadeau look into Hydro-Québec’s future as the public utility marks the 75th anniversary of its founding. The future is now and it is electric. It spans widely diverse fields such as big data aggregation centers, exports to the United States, acquisitions in Mexico, Chinese buses, mega-batteries, bitcoins, charging stations, and much more.
