To facilitate and support the electrification of commercial vehicles, Hydro-Québec is announcing the launch of charging solutions for EV fleets, to be offered by its subsidiary InnovHQ. The solutions help carriers and charging service providers go electric by providing them with independent expertise, customized support and a smart charging management platform.

The solutions are divided into two types of services based on each company’s needs:

  • An all-inclusive charging service that fully supports the company for every step involved in successfully transitioning to electric vehicles, from selecting and installing charging infrastructure to operating and maintaining it, as well as smart energy management.
  • A smart charging management platform made up of a cloud application that ensures the optimal charging of EVs and integrates into fleet operators’ existing activities. The platform, which optimizes energy costs, is compatible with all types of existing vehicles, charging stations and software.

“We are pleased to act as an ally for carriers to accelerate and facilitate their energy transition. Our innovative solutions help ensure they can reliably charge their vehicles while reducing their energy costs and minimizing the impact of the electricity demand on Hydro-Québec’s grid,” explained Jeff Desruisseaux, CEO in Residence at InnovHQ.

This service offering is being launched following the success of a pilot project carried out in recent months with Autobus Groupe Séguin, which enabled that company to optimally integrate electric school buses into its fleet while benefiting from the required technology and support.

These solutions meet the needs of many types of vehicle fleets, in particular those used for urban transport, school transportation, parcel delivery, utilities, freight services and municipal services.

Hydro-Québec’s team of charging solution experts would like to collaborate with as many players as possible in the electric road transportation ecosystem, and subsequent announcements will be made in the coming months in this regard.
