Tidal Energy: Strategic Environmental Assessment – Bay of Fundy Update (Phase II)

This is an update to the Phase 1 Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) of marine renewable energy in the Bay of Fundy, with an emphasis on tidal in‐stream turbines. The initial SEA for the Bay of Fundy was completed in 2008.  Since that time, the tidal energy industry has evolved considerably in the Bay of Fundy; technologies have changed, new legislation has been tabled, resource estimates have been updated, environment effects monitoring programs have been completed or are ongoing, and community understanding and opinions regarding the social, economic and environmental effects from tidal energy have changed.
