The developing focus on renewable energy resources in Canada’s three oceans

Canada, a major player in the world of hydro-electricity, became involved with marine hydraulic power generation when the Annapolis power station was commissioned in the early 1980’s. 


After a gap in interest, British Columbia Hydro worked on launching marine energy projects in early 2000’s, Nova Scotia and New Brunswick partnered with the Electric Power Research Institute and there is an emerging national, and international, interest in the Canadian opportunities. The Ocean Renewable Energy Group has been formed as a sectoral association to promote the opportunity.
