Nova Scotia and British Columbia will work together to develop tidal power on Canada’s Atlantic and Pacific coasts under a memorandum of understanding signed during the annual energy and mines ministers’ conference in Halifax earlier this week.
“The agreement says a council of senior government officials will be formed to bring together public- and private-sector stakeholders to move forward with the memorandum and to ensure there is a consistent regulatory framework across Canada,” CP reports. “The Nova Scotia government says the memorandum represents a commitment from both provinces to further develop the tidal resources in the Bay of Fundy and wave-generated energy on British Columbia’s west coast.”
