The Grid 2020

Executive Summary

Every year, the Electricity Canada compiles stories, initiatives, and cutting-edge projects from both staff and Electricity Canada member companies across the country, in an effort to tell the collective story of Canadian electricity.

The Grid 2020 focuses on the theme of “transformation” and the way it is affecting – and will continue to affect – the electricity sector. This publication is one of the many ways Electricity Canada shares the latest electricity industry news, best practices and trends with its members, corporate partners, government partners and other key stakeholders while educating them on the work that the membership from coast-to-coast-to-coast is doing.

Editor’s note:

“As the electricity sector looks ahead to 2050, one thing is abundantly clear: we must transform to meet our national climate goals. And while our industry was already on a fast track to change, COVID-19 further disrupted every aspect of not only our operations, but our lives.

During these difficult times, our sector has taken extraordinary actions to deliver a critical service—reliable, safe and affordable electricity—for Canadians. We would like to thank all utility workers— those working from home and those who are in the field—for keeping the lights on and powering homes, essential services and businesses from coast-to-coast-to-coast.”

—Sarah Robinson, Director of Communications and Marketing, Electricity Canada
