Tuning Up Waterpower

“Almost every Canadian waterpower generator is preparing for the inevitable decarbonisation and electrification of the economy, and examining the opportunity to leverage as much additional capacity as they can from existing waterpower stations,” explains Anne-Raphaëlle Audouin, president of WaterPower Canada, the national trade association for hydroelectricity producers in Canada. “There are thousands of megawatts of potential new waterpower generation capacity waiting to be harnessed in Canada, just from refurbishing and redeveloping existing generation units and sites,” added Audouin. “The additional hydroelectricity produced can be delivered at a lower cost than most—if not all—other options for new supply.”
