About TEQ

Since April 1, 2017, Transition énergétique Québec (TEQ) is the new public body that is responsible for supporting, encouraging and promoting the energy transition, innovation and efficiency.


Transition énergétique Québec (TEQ) is a public corporation created as part of Québec’s 2030 Energy Policy to ensure Québec’s energy transition. Its mission is to support, encourage, and promote energy transition, innovation, and efficiency, and to coordinate the implementation of all the programs and measures required to meet the energy targets set out by the Government of Québec.

The initial 2017–2020 Action Plan associated with Québec’s Energy Policy contains 42 measures designed to ensure Québec’s energy transition, defining TEQ’s objectives at the same time.

Every five years, TEQ elaborates a master plan with its partners, which contains all of the means to attain the government’s targets. The first plan will cover the period 2018-2023.
