An $86,000 investment to Marine Renewables Canada to accelerate safe and cost-effective deployment of clean technology systems, has been made by the Government of Canada.
The investment supports Canadian experts participating in developing international standards for marine renewable energy. They will reduce the cost of deploying marine renewable technology and facilitate international collaboration and trade.
“As an emerging clean energy sector, the development of technical standards that are internationally recognized is critical to the success of marine renewable energy technologies and projects,” said Elisa Obermann, Executive Director, Marine Renewables Canada. “Marine Renewables Canada has appreciated the support from the Government of Canada to facilitate the Canadian subcommittee for the International Electrical Commission’s (IEC) TC-114 standards development. The support has been instrumental in bringing Canada’s industry experts together to provide leadership and guidance in the development of technical specifications and international standards.”
