Solar Photovoltaics in Quebec: Competitive with Wind and Hydro by 2030

As Quebec forges ahead in its energy transition and ramps up the electrification of its economy, energy needs continue to rise and the province is anticipating an energy shortfall by 2026. In this context, renewable energy research and innovation centre Nergica is publishing today the first in-depth study to focus on the potential of the solar energy sector in Quebec: Solar Photovoltaics in the Quebec Energy Mix – Analysis and Outlook.

Sustainable, flexible and competitive, solar photovoltaics (PV) has expanded substantially throughout the world in recent years, leading to an 85% drop in production costs between 2010 and 2020. PV could therefore be developed to account for a greater slice of Quebec’s energy portfolio.
