Tide-powered clean energy could help West Coast communities ditch diesel

"...Tidal currents in the channel regularly reach six knots, or 11 kilometres, and are close to the Blind Channel Resort, which will act as the new demo site for the turbine and associated microgrid system, he said. “What we’re hoping to do is to generate partnerships with Indigenous coastal communities and use the Blind Channel centre as kind of a shop window,” Whitby added. What people are reading Shocking new federal research reveals Alberta oilsands may be vastly underestimating greenhouse gas emissions By Bob Weber | News, Politics | April 24th 2023 The tidal project is expected to generate about 100 kilowatts of electricity at full capacity, which should cover 80 per cent of the energy required to run the resort, he added..."

Microgrids should be the future of electricity. Let's fund them.

"...It is fertile ground for the new technologies of distributed generation, energy management and energy storage. Relatively short product-development cycles, the commodification of services, the “internet-of-energy,” sophisticated data analytics and mass production of distributed energy resources all challenge status quo business models and regulatory frameworks. Activities and technologies “beyond the meter” and out of reach of the traditional utility modus operandi are proliferating..."

New U.S. Navy Climate Strategy Sets High-Level Goals

"...It’s not hard to find examples of climate change directly threatening Navy infrastructure. Of course, most of the navy’s land-based assets—shipyards, bases, and other installations—are on seacoasts. As the Center for Climate and Security has previously assessed, locations like Norfolk Naval Base in Virginia and Parris Island in South Carolina face serious risks from rising sea levels and storm surges..."
