Recommendation Four – Expand Collaboration Across Borders

The electricity grid is already very much a shared resource between Canada and the United States, yet additional opportunities for integration and collaboration abound. Vision 2050 recommends optimizing electricity assets from a more integrated North American approach and expanding scope for electricity storage and export of low-carbon electricity to the United States.
