Federal support for offshore wind

Still reflecting on my experience last week at the Marine Renewables Canada conference in Ottawa. I was pleased to be invited to join the offshore wind panel with Sunny Gupta of Ørsted, Ross Tyler of Business Network for Offshore Wind, John Pires of Northland Power Inc. and Dr. Bryson Robertson of University of Victoria. It was encouraging to hear the Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister of Natural Resources, Kim Rudd, speak to the federal government's support of marine renewable energy, including offshore wind. The new "emerging renewables" program will provide federal funds to support deployment of renewables, including offshore wind. Interest in the sector is growing and I'm thrilled to be a part of it!
