Management and Decision-Making for Energy-Sector Professionals

In Collaboration with Chair in Energy Sector Management


The action plan associated with the 2030 Energy Policy falls mainly under the purview of the new agency known as Transition énergétique Québec (TEQ). TEQ’s mission is to support, encourage and promote energy transition, innovation and efficiency. It is tasked with coordinating the execution of the programs and measures necessary to achieve the Quebec government’s energy targets. This sweeping program is bound to have an impact on many economic spheres and will require businesses to adjust their practices accordingly. Is your organization ready for what’s ahead?

This two-day seminar on energy sector management, organized by HEC Montréal, embraces a practical approach that takes into consideration the 2030 Energy Policy, the Act Respecting Transition énergétique Québec and the creation of the TEQ. The program affords a unique opportunity to share and broaden your understanding of the province’s energy sector, alongside fellow colleagues who possess complementary talents, in order to better leverage the opportunities available to you between now and 2030.

The 2030 Energy Policy is being implemented within a global context where there are certain political hesitations on how to approach the issue of climate change, although the existence of weather and temperature fluctuations is no longer in dispute. Regional initiatives such as the California/Quebec/Ontario carbon market have already been rolled out, and various technological innovations (batteries, renewable energy production, megadata, etc.) are making it possible to envision things differently than in the past.

This seminar will examine these worldwide trends from a local perspective, with a focus on the legislative provisions specific to Quebec.
