  1. With its large landmass and active forest and agricultural industries, Canada has access to large and diversified biomass resources that can be used for energy production. Currently, bioenergy is the second most important form of renewable energy in Canada. In fact, bioenergy represents about 5 percent of Canada’s total primary energy.


  2. Marine renewable energy (MRE) has the potential to contribute to Nova Scotia’s energy needs, reduce its greenhouse gas emissions, and provide economic opportunities at the local level. Thanks to its rich heritage of ocean knowledge and innovation, along with the natural advantage of tides the highest and fastest tides on the planet, Nova Scotia is well-placed to become global player in this emerging energy industry.
