Quebec’s energy transition: Seize the opportunity


Transition énergétique Québec’s master plan for the province’s energy transition shows just how quickly the technological context is changing.

Knowing this, what approach should you take to the various programs and measures in place to reach the government’s energy targets? Will technology and the market ultimately be the forces that drive change in this arena?

To come out ahead in this energy transition, it’s crucial to take the time to understand the context and consider your options.

This practical, two-day seminar in energy sector management is tailored to Quebec’s energy policy context, including the impact of Transition énergétique Québec and relevant market trends.

The transition is occurring in a global context characterized by inadequate political will to address climate change, despite overwhelming evidence of extreme weather events and rising temperatures. Nevertheless, regional initiatives such as the Quebec-California carbon market are already underway, and technological advances (batteries, renewable energy production, artificial intelligence, etc.) are making it possible to do things differently than in the past.

This seminar will offer a chance to interpret global trends from a local perspective, taking into consideration Quebec’s particular legislative framework.
