Ontario has many things it can leverage â€” a world-class transmission utility, a diverse power mix, a strategy to shut down coal plants, and a commitment to renewables and electric vehicles. We also have a strong telecommunications and IT heritage that, combined with our expertise in traditional energy fields, could be used to make Ontario a clear leader in smart-grid development. All it needs now is a comprehensive plan, a vision behind it, and a commitment from both government and the private sector to come together and make it happen. It could become a significant source of job creation for the province, and a significant path to export opportunities.
