Canadian power utility Hydro-Québec has revealed the bidders for two renewable energy tenders it launched in December 2021.

For a 300MW wind power tender, the utility received 11 project proposals with a combined capacity of 2.1GW, while for a 480MW electricity procurement exercise renewable, the company received 13 projects totaling 2.1 GW.

Among the projects submitted, only one relies on PV technology — a 40 MW solar park under development by Saint-Augustin Canada Electric Inc (stace) and planned to be located in Bas Saint Laurent, with delivery scheduled for October 2026.

Selected projects must begin supplying electricity to the grid by the end of 2026 under long-term power purchase agreements.

As part of the 2030 energy policy, the Quebec government is aiming for a 40% reduction in the quantity of petroleum products consumed; elimination of the use of thermal coal; a 25% increase in the share of renewable energies in total energy production; and a 50% increase in bioenergy production.
