HYDRO’S POTENTIAL IN A ZERO CARBON FUTURE

With various parties pushing for new transmission projects, could Canadian hydropower play a role in New York City's zero carbon future? We received an influx of questions and concerns about hydropower during our conference, so we're excited to welcome the CEO of Hydro-Québec to Urban Green Live to tackle them from an operator's perspective.

On July 8, Hydro-Québec CEO Sophie Brochu and Urban Green CEO John Mandyck will explore the opportunities of tapping Québec’s hydro and answer your questions about its benefits and drawbacks.
