Digby Tidal energy projects are taking off in the Bay of Fundy. Marine Renewables Canada (MRC) is offering workshops in locations across Nova Scotia for companies interested in exploring opportunities in the tidal energy supply chain. Three levels of government have partnered to contribute more than $100,000 to the initiative.

Nova Scotia—with its strategy for tidal power development in the Bay of Fundy—is considered a world leader in the marine renewable energy sector. Since 2006, considerable attention and resources have been focused on researching and developing in-stream tidal energy in Nova Scotia. The deployment of multiple turbines signals the next phase of development. This will help determine the viability of extracting energy from tides, converting it and transmitting it to the power grid. It is anticipated that Canada will be one of the first countries to establish tidal array projects.

To build on the momentum of tidal energy projects in the Bay of Fundy, MRC has been working to assess the needs of local project developers—including Fundy Tidal Inc., Minas Energy, Black Rock Tidal Power Inc., Atlantis Operations Canada and Cape Sharp Tidal Venture. The goal is to identify Atlantic Canadian suppliers who can meet tidal energy development requirements through expertise in ocean technology, marine operations and offshore oil and gas. Beginning this month, MRC is delivering a series of webinars, in-person workshops and community open houses to potential suppliers. In addition to providing information, the sessions will connect local suppliers with international developers. The sessions will take place throughout 2015, in locations across Nova Scotia including Halifax, Digby and Parrsboro.

The Government of Canada is investing $46,105 through ACOA’s Innovative Communities Fund (ICF) to support the marine renewable energy supplier engagement and development initiative. The Government of Nova Scotia is investing $45,000 through the Department of Energy. Municipal support includes $10,000 from the Municipality of the County of Cumberland and $4,000 from the Digby Development Agency which comprises the Municipality of the District of Digby and the Town of Digby.

Today we are all concerned with the energy we consume within our homes. But how many truly understand the ins and outs of home energy use, and where exactly does the electrician and the development of energy management systems come into play. There is much to consider when discussing home energy use. The consumer first off needs to be informed about energy use, how it is calculated and ultimately billed if they are to make changes to their energy consumption rates. But in terms of educating consumers does the residential electrician have a role? And beyond that are manufacturers developing products designed to help electricians and consumers better understand residential energy use? Throughout this article we will deal with each of these important questions.

Jeremy Herrington

Total Electrical Solutions was founded in 2013 by Jeremy Herrington in Quispamsis, on the outskirts of Saint John, New Brunswick. Since 2013 Jeremy has steadily grown Total Electrical Solutions in the residential, commercial and construction sectors. The growth is primarily the result of Jeremy’s customer first philosophy, plus his over 20 years of industry experience.

Jeremy grew up learning about the industry from his father who was an electrical contractor. Jeremy spent his early years helping and watching his father as a contractor and business owner. After high school Jeremy was, like many, not wholly aware of the course he wished to take and so he began an electrical apprenticeship at his father’s company.
