CanREA’s Electricity Transition Hub Summit 2023  

January 24 to 25, 2023
Toronto, Ontario 

The first annual Hub Summit, exclusively for Canadian utilities and system operators, was part of CanREA’s recently launched Electricity Transition Hub. This was a unique, two-day event focused on the challenges and opportunities presented by innovative renewable-energy technologies.  

Topics stemmed from CanREA’s work with Electricity Transition Hub participants throughout the year to provide the most relevant conversations for Canadian electricity utilities and system operators.  

  • Large group sessions leveraged the Hub’s network of international experts, adapting leading-edge knowledge and experiences for relevance to the Canadian grid.  
  • Guest speakers hosted small group sessions, placing a priority on dialogue and the efficient exchange of information.  
  • Using a workshop format, the Hub Summit provided ample time for discussion and collaboration on specially selected themes.  

The Hub Summit was an exclusive event for CanREA’s Electricity Transition Hub. Tickets were free for Hub participants, granting access to all the sessions and workshops, as well as meals for the full two days of the Summit. 

Non-participating utilities and system operators who would like more information about CanREA’s Electricity Transition Hub and the Hub Summit are invited to view the Electricity Transition Hub webpage and contact CanREA’s Electricity Transition Hub Manager Jim Zhao.

What is the CanREA Electricity Transition Hub? 

The CanREA Electricity Transition Hub (“the Hub”) is a new entity bringing together electricity utilities and system operators for capacity-building activities related to renewable energy and grid modernization projects in Canada. It aims to share relevant knowledge and skills through a curated resource library known as the Electricity Transition Hub Electronic Resource (ETHER) Library, as well as reporting resources, quarterly meetings and an annual Hub Summit. The Hub is led by the Canadian Renewable Energy Association (CanREA) and funded by the Smart Renewables and Electrification Pathways (SREPs) program.
