Research Centre: Ocean, Coastal and River Engineering
Wind turbines and solar panels dot the landscape in many parts of Canada, each helping to reduce Canada’s dependence on fossil fuels and move the nation to more environmentally friendly and sustainable power sources. Today, almost 17 percent of Canada’s total primary energy supply comes from renewable resources – an important contribution toward extending the planet’s life and reducing our impact on the environment as energy demand continues to rise. The National Research Council (NRC) is working to increase this percentage through R&D focused on mapping marine energy resources improving the commercial and technical performance of marine renewable energy systems – emerging technologies for harvesting useful energy from ocean waves and water currents in both rivers and coastal waters.
