Canadian Waterpower Week conference to discuss advancing projects and investments — including hydropower refurbishments and green hydrogen — to achieve the country’s 2030 Paris Agreement climate goals.
Waterpower is Canada’s most abundant source of clean and renewable electricity. It provides more than 60 per cent of Canada’s electricity, with a capacity that will soon exceed 85,000 MW.
This makes Canada the fourth-largest generator of hydroelectricity in the world, and results in one of the world’s cleanest electricity grids.
More than 300 experts from the hydroelectricity industry across Canada and around the world attended the annual national conference, which focused on the industry’s role in reaching net-zero carbon emissions.
