N.S., N.B. to share cost of Bay of Fundy tidal power study

June 13, 2007 - The News, Nova Scotia, Canada

Buoyed by the potential of tidal energy in the Bay of Fundy, the New Brunswick and Nova Scotia governments are jointly funding a study that will bring marine renewable power generation one step closer to a reality.

The two provinces will each invest $75,000 in an environmental assessment of tidal power in the bay. The assessment will include a comprehensive consultation process with organizations and groups with an interest in the future of tidal power in the region, as well as a socio-economic impact assessment report.

The Offshore Energy and Environmental Research Association, a group of Nova Scotia universities established and funded by the provincial government to study the sector, will be responsible for carrying out the request-for-proposal process.

Meinhard Doelle, chairman of the assessment's technical advisory group, said the two jurisdictions will make waves in the tidal power community with the study.

"The idea of doing a strategic environmental assessment has been talked about for a long time but we don't have a lot of experience doing this in Canada, so this is a novel thing," Doelle said.

"It's a very exciting process. It has the potential to address a lot of the shortcomings that you see at the project specific level."
