On September 1, 2022, Kitchener-Wilmot Hydro Inc. (KWHI) and Waterloo North Hydro Inc. (WNH) merged to become one company, Enova Power Corp. (Enova).
Enova is making full use of its talent and resources to advance new ideas and innovation and has recently formed an Innovation and Business Transformation department.
“The future of electricity distribution and the opportunities in distributed energy generation and grid automation have been areas of interest for both legacy utilities, but at times this work has been done from the corners of our desks. Creating a dedicated team focused on those opportunities will let us maximize the talents of our teams,” says Rene Gatien, Co-CEO, Enova.
But the work will not be focused solely on the grid. Innovation will be driven by the needs of customers and improving the customer experience, improving efficiency across the business in operations and maintenance, and the need to support electrification.
“During the brand development work for Enova one of the personality traits to come through was we are the ‘the smart friend you can rely on’. That resonated with us and captured what we do every day, laying the framework for a thoughtful, needs-based approach to innovation and solving problems for our customers,” says Jerry Van Ooteghem, Co-CEO, Enova.
