Cape Sharp Tidal in the Community
Community Open House Events: September and October were busy months meeting with neighbours and community leaders at open houses around the Bay of Fundy. At events in Pictou, Parrsboro, Halifax and Wolfville, our team and partners from FORCE, Nova Scotia Department of Energy and the Fundy Tidal Research Institute at Acadia University set up tradeshow-style booths to showcase their areas of expertise, and answer questions directly from residents. Thank you to everyone who stopped by to say hello and for giving us opportunity to share our plans, and to showcase our vision for renewable energy in the province.
Twitter: We also launched a Twitter profile to share news about the project and upcoming events. As we near deployment, we’ll be posting more and more photos of the ongoing assembly work at the Pictou Shipyard.
Fundy Energy Research Network (FERN): Several members of our project staff volunteer their time with the Fundy Energy Research Network (FERN) , a non-profit research group which meets to foster collaborations, capacity building and information exchange in the areas of environmental, engineering and socio-economic factors related to tidal energy development in the Bay of Fundy. FERN has almost 200 members, and this network connects Cape Sharp Tidal with academia, government, industry and technology.
