Project Objectives

The objective of this project is to conduct a front end engineering and design (FEED) study to assess the opportunity for a 500kw tidal energy generation system combining pumped hydroelectric storage to displace diesel with clean, reliable, and firm power generation on the north grid of Haida Gwaii.

The FEED aims to complete and validate the site feasibility, project design, technical components, permitting, and economic costs of a potential demonstration scale combined tidal generation and pumped hydroelectric storage project.

Expected Results

Results of this FEED study are expected to lead to a demonstration project to reduce the use of fossil fuels, resulting in lower greenhouse gas emissions and improved local air quality.

A successful demonstration would advance technology readiness level and increase the potential for replication in other remote communities seeking to use local sustainable energy resources to replace diesel fuel for heat and power. This project will also provide economic benefits to Canadians through the creation of local jobs.

This tidal energy project will be an important step toward more renewable energy potential, particularly in remote coastal communities with fragile ecosystems.
