The government of Nova Scotia released a surprising new energy strategy this week, focused primarily on the tidal energy sector. The Province has set out what critics are calling a very ambitious goal of providing ten per cent (300 megawatts) of the its total energy supply from tidal energy technology by 2020.

According to Barbara Pike, executive director of the Maritimes Energy Association, “If you take a look at how they’re planning to proceed with it by building the research, by looking at technology development and…marketplace and supplier development, all of those are key steps that have to be taken.”

This strategy is part of the provincial government’s overall goal of deriving 40 per cent of all energy from renewable sources by 2020. It will introduce the required legislation to adopt this strategy in the spring of 2013.
