Summary

Outside temperatures are an important factor in electricity demand in Quebec because many households and businesses rely on electricity for heating and cooling. Hydro-Québec’s distribution division, in collaboration with the Ouranos Consortium, studied these impacts in depth and implemented ways to incorporate recent changes in average temperature into energy and peak demand forecast.
