Abstract:

This report is the third in a series of reports, and is intended to be a useful reference for smart grid practitioners in Canada, and for international smart grid stakeholders interested to learn more about smart grid activities in Canada. Natural Resources Canada’s CanmetENERGY research labs manage the Canada Smart Grid Action Network. Members of this network have contributed to this report which highlights the current status of smart grid progress in Canada in the 2012-2013 timeframe. It includes provincial and regional activities, identifies projects under way and discusses how smart grids will be implemented throughout distribution systems in Canada and similar electricity markets.

Readers should refer to the 2011-2012 report for an introductory overview of smart grid activities in Canada, and the 2010-2011 report for a broader industry overview of smart grid in Canada.
