Canada’s Marine Renewable Energy Resources

Test Sites and Shared Infrastructure

  • WAVEWest Coast Wave Initiative (WCWI) is co-funded by the Government of Canada, will use wind, wave and tidal data collected from a single fixed buoy, located offshore near Ucluelet, on Vancouver Island’s west coast.
  • RIVERCanadian Hydrokinetic Turbine Testing Centre (CHTTC) is a partnership that joins manufacturers, turbine and fish researchers, and utilities to advance the development of river current technology in Canada. The goal of the CHTTC’s work is to deploy systems in rivers, develop the required expertise from water-to-wire, and contribute to harness a portion of the hydrokinetic river resource in Canada.
