Hydro-québec's 2035 action plan

A project that contributes to the energy transition

The Onimiki Renewable Energy project can play an important role in Quebec's energy transition.

This renewable energy project is in line with the objectives set by the Quebec government.

The Quebec government is firmly committed to the energy transition and to achieving carbon neutrality by 2050. To achieve this, Hydro-Québec will need to significantly increase energy production.

In addition, the particular situation of the Témiscamingue MRC regularly requires energy imports from Ontario.

By 2035, Hydro-Québec aims to add 60 terawatt-hours of electricity, or between 8,000 and 9,000 megawatts of additional power. The utility has unveiled its 2035 Action Plan.

Priority 3 of the 2035 Action Plan

« Increase electricity production – Identify and start up the best projects that will enable us to produce more electricity to support Quebec’s ambitions, keeping an open mind about all the options available to us. » 

Hydro-Québec is committed to working with local stakeholders to evaluate all possible options. Onimiki Renewable Energy is convinced that the community energy model is part of the solution.

Priority 4 of the 2035 Action Plan

« Work more closely with Aboriginal communities – Initiate a process of economic reconciliation with First Nations and Inuit, in collaboration with the Quebec government. »  

Hydro-Québec wants to reach out to Indigenous communities to undertake an economic reconciliation plan, so that new energy projects are sources of sustainable prosperity. Three of Onimiki Renewable Energy’s four partners are Indigenous communities. Our project is perfectly in line with this desire.
