A $6m Smart Grid project is underway in part of the Canadian city Quebec.

The demonstration project is being run by the research institute of Canadian utility Hydro-Quebec and is designed to showcase how Smart Grids can transport both conventional and renewable energy-generated electricity.

The project is funded by the Canadian government’s Clean Energy Fund, launched last year with a budget of nearly $800m. Already the fund has announced it will finance three carbon capture and storage projects at a cost of $466m.
