Smart Grid Atlantic Initiative

Starting in 2019, Smart Grid Atlantic is a four-year, federally-funded initiative that will help Atlantic Canada move to a smarter, cleaner, more resilient and efficient power grid. The project partners are researching and testing how the grid of the future can optimize the integration of renewable sources of energy, ensure the stability of the grid and manage decentralized distribution. Deploying technologies in New Brunswick and Nova Scotia, the aim is to better manage the provinces’ electricity, potentially reduce consumers’ future electricity costs and reduce greenhouse gas emissions.
