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.

After an afternoon of business insights and industry updates, join us an evening summer social and lobster dinner on Lake Banook!
