  • 8. Key Messages8
  • 9. • Canadian and US grids are interconnected north / south• Canadian hydropower offers affordable and reliable electricityprices because it is not subject to volatile fuel prices• For every dollar the USA spends on Canadian energy, theUSA receives back 91 cents from the products thatCanadians buy from the USA• Each Terawatt Hour of Canadian hydropower exported to theUSA displaces between 500,000 and 1,000,000 mt of CO2• Hydropower helps integrate new renewable electricity suchas wind and solar in both the USA and Canada• Canadian hydropower is currently less than 1% of USAelectricity supplyCanadian Hydropower in North America9
  • 10. Electric Vehicles• Hydro under current development is more than enoughto electrify the current Canadian Light Duty Vehicle(LDV) fleet• Each province (Maritimes combined) has enoughundeveloped hydro to electrify their own LDV fleets• Half of undeveloped Canadian hydro could fuel allCanadian LDVs and ~25% of the US fleet• If all Canadian LDVs were powered by hydro, GHGemissions would be reduced by ~ 70 megatonnes peryear10
