The Centre of Excellence 2019 – Innovation is Happening Across Canadian Electric Utilities

Every year, the Canadian Electricity Association (CEA) celebrates electric utility innovation and cutting-edge technology. The pace of change across the electricity industry is as great as it has ever been. Our sector is looking ahead to an unparalleled era of innovation and investment. LED lights, smart thermostats, and energy-efficient appliances are technologies readily visible to consumers. These have obvious benefits for the user, but also help the grid overall. However, innovation is happening in ways that consumers can’t always see. New technologies are rapidly changing the way electricity is generated and distributed.

This year, CEA is proud to celebrate 27 innovative projects from electricity generation to customer usage. These projects will positively impact the lives of Canadians and help shape our collective energy future.
