Net Zero Atlantic – a new organization that is advancing Atlantic Canada’s sustainable and inclusive transition to a carbon-neutral future – is now active in the region.

“The path to net zero emissions has many unknowns, and we are applying our skills to help resolve them by supplying credible and objective data and support services,” says Executive Director Alisdair McLean. “Our team is enabling the energy system transition in Atlantic Canada by leading applied research and contributing to carbon mitigation projects.”

The Net Zero Atlantic team is already coordinating applied research and strategic projects in topics related to the energy transition that currently include – but won’t be limited to – hydrogen, offshore wind, geothermal energy, tidal energy, and energy system modeling.

Net Zero Atlantic is born out of OERA, which managed offshore energy-related research for 10 years.

“Our work to advance a sustainable and inclusive transition to a carbon-neutral Atlantic Canada is made possible by our experienced team of research and project management professionals collaborating with our strong network of academic and private-sector researchers, innovators, and experts in our region, across Canada and internationally,” says McLean.
