Distribution System Climate Risk and Vulnerability Assessment – Hydro Ottawa

Distribution System Climate Risk and Vulnerability Assessment – Hydro Ottawa

Over 330,000 residences and businesses in the City of Ottawa and the Village of Casselman depend on
Hydro Ottawa Limited (Hydro Ottawa) to supply continuous and reliable electrical service. In recent years,
notably in 2018, Hydro Ottawa distribution infrastructure has been subjected to particularly extreme
weather events that caused severe damages to their system. These events resulted in widespread
outages and costly recoveries. In an effort to maintain reliable service in the coming years, Hydro Ottawa
has retained Stantec Consulting Ltd. to conduct a climate risk and vulnerability assessment (CRVA) and
provide recommendations for adaptation and risk mitigation within their operation, design, and business
functions to help protect their infrastructure, service delivery and occupational health and safety.
