Category: Buildings

Location: Québec, Canada

GSEP member: Hydro-Québec

In Shawinigan, Québec, Canada, Hydro-Québec experiments with the smart home concept.

These homes of the future were adapted into net-zero-energy houses to understand the issues related to the growing popularity of advanced smart houses, electric vehicles – including vehicle-to-grid (V2G) and vehicle-to-home (V2H) applications – and distributed generation.

Technologies being tested on these houses include smart home systems, a bidirectional EV charging station, and photovoltaic solar panels.
