The availability of cheap natural gas as a result of the fracking boom in the United States has significantly weakened the market for hydroelectricity exports from Quebec to its US neighbours. At the same time Ontario is looking for storage capacity to balance the growing amounts of intermittent renewable energy sources connected to its grid and, potentially, cost-effective alternatives to nuclear refurbishments. Is it time for a neighbourly chat?
