Energy Planning Analytical Research
The Energy Planning department at BC Hydro looks at how the company can meet B.C.'s future electricity demand through conservation, generation and transmission, and through upgrades to existing infrastructure. As new resources require lead times to develop, BC Hydro must plan ahead so that the new resources are ready when we need them. The Energy Planning (EP) Analytical Research project is made up of three sub-projects that have the potential to improve the efficiency in which BC Hydro develops its residential and electric vehicle load forecast as well as the way BC Hydro ensures the reliability of its systems.
