MRC East Coast Summer Event, August 11 2022: Business & Supply Chain Forum + Summer Social on the Lake

August 11, 2022 @ 1:00 pm - 9:00 pm

East Coast Summer Event MRC
Join Marine Renewables Canada for our East Coast Summer Event, taking place on August 11th in Halifax & Dartmouth, Nova Scotia! This year, attendees can benefit from two events in one day – an afternoon business and supply chain forum followed by an evening summer social and lobster dinner.

Marine Renewable Energy Business and Supply Chain Forum
1:00 – 5:00 PM
Westin Nova Scotian Hotel | Halifax | Nova Scotia

With Canada and countries around the world working to decarbonize the economy through measures such as electrification and the use of carbon-free fuels like green hydrogen, the amount of clean energy produced will need to increase dramatically. While solar and wind energy are a key focus for expansion, it is increasingly recognized that a diverse electricity mix and solutions will be needed. The opportunity for marine renewable energy like tidal and offshore wind energy to play an important role in both supporting the energy transition and building a Blue Economy is increasing, as are the opportunities for businesses and suppliers with existing capabilities in marine, energy, and offshore industries.

This half day forum is designed to explore the opportunities presented by marine renewable energy development in the Atlantic region.

The event will provide insight on:

  • Supply chain development created by early tidal energy projects
  • Growing business opportunities in the US offshore wind market
  • Potential for offshore wind development in Atlantic Canada and associated market opportunities such as clean electricity and green fuels/hydrogen

Join us for this half day forum to learn more about how your business can get involved and benefit from the growing marine renewable energy sector.
