About the Event

A new report from the Public Policy Forum’s Atlantic Momentum Initiative notes that the game-changing potential of offshore wind power in Atlantic Canada, combined with an ambitious vision to develop it as an urgent national project, could turn the region into an energy superpower. In Catching the Wind: How Atlantic Canada Can Become an Energy Superpower, the author writes that despite having among the world’s longest and windiest coastlines, Canada does not yet have a single turbine, operating or under construction, in its offshore waters. While nearly 30 countries are ahead of us, Atlantic Canada’s maritime legacy, deep-water ports, skilled workforce and robust ocean technology sector position it well to become a powerful emerging player in the field.

PPF members are invited to join PPF on December 7, 2023 at 1:00 pm AT for a virtual conversation with the author of Catching the Wind, Peter Nicholson, Chair of the Board of the Canadian Climate Institute.

This event is exclusive to PPF Members. If you are interested in learning more about membership, please contact the Strategic Engagement Team at membership@ppforum.ca.
