Natural Resources Canada is working to establish a national electrical and energy systems modeling network that reflects the diverse needs and realities of the country, and can inform electricity stakeholders on the way forward on electrification and other pressing energy systems issues.

In this context, Natural Resources Canada has partnered with the Institut de l’énergie Trottier of Polytechnique Montréal to set-up the Energy Modeling Initiative, whose main objective is to provide the ideas that can serve as the foundation for the creation of a Canadian network for power and energy systems modeling, as well as a platform for sharing tools and results.
