To meet the net-zero target established in the Emission Accountability Act, members of the Canadian government should create economically friendly business models for energy storage generators and investors. Despite relying more heavily on non-renewable energy sources, the US has made a significant investment in energy storage technologies to provide for their power needs.

Thanks for sharing, Alicia. Are there any official collaborations between the U.S. and Canada when it comes to the energy storage development? Is this an area where specific international partnerships can help these manufacturers win out compared with competition that's an ocean or more away?

Alicia, Great report. Thanks you.  I think you said it all with the great Hydro in Canada. The USA could increase but doesn't see that great Elecphant in the room. Maybe articles like yours will wake a few Yankies up and get them moving. That is what I am trying to do in Arizona. 

QUOTE=Hydro is the predominant source of electricity generation in Canada, accounting for 60% of all energy production (with some provinces reaching as high as 90%).
