Pollution-free travel

Quebecers want EVs to be more accessible. We also think all the buses and trucks on our roads should be powered by clean energy.

Pollution-free travel

Quebecers want EVs to be more accessible. We also think all the buses and trucks on our roads should be powered by clean energy.

At Hydro-Québec, we put a lot of effort into making electric vehicles more accessible by providing easy access to charging stations.

Many people share our desire for pollution-free travel and they regularly choose sustainable mobility options. By riding a bike or opting for car sharing or public transit, we are all taking a step in the right direction to ensure a greener future.

Electrifying know-how

We are actively participating in transportation electrification by using our expertise to develop new technologies, such as lighter and safer batteries for electric vehicles as well as electric motors for different kinds of vehicles.

For the past 10 years, our public charging network—the Electric Circuit—has grown throughout the province to make it easier for EV drivers to charge their vehicles.

By promoting electric transportation powered by clean, renewable energy, we are making a significant contribution to the decarbonization of Québec.

A Hilo smart solution

With an increasing number of electric vehicles on our roads, demand for electricity is growing. This is particularly true during periods of peak demand, when many vehicles are being charged simultaneously.

Hilo will soon be offering a smart solution for charging stations. EV drivers will be able to plug in their vehicle at any time without it affecting grid stability, even during cold snaps when electricity demand is at its highest.

Hilo will communicate directly with the charging stations so that the charging sessions can be shifted outside peak periods. This will free up energy and help the grid meet demand. The objective in doing so is to prevent Québec from having to import electricity from polluting energy sources at times of high demand, and to limit or postpone investments on the grid, the cost of which could be reflected in electricity rates.

A sustainable mobility app

Transit is a mobile app that was developed to provide access to greener transportation in major cities worldwide, including some cities in Québec. Bike sharing, car sharing, taxis and public transit—there are lots of ways to get around while avoiding solo car travel.
