Presentations from the Supplier Information Session in NL: Opportunities in Marine Renewable Energy

Thank you to all the presenters who graciously gave their time and expertise to speak to the 25+ industry representative that attended the March 21, 2013 Supplier Information Session on Marine Renewable Energy we hosted in St. John’s, NL. 

The growing marine renewable energy sector offers a unique opportunity for Canada to become a leader in providing solutions, systems, and expertise to the world market and we hope that this session was able to identify some of those opportunities available to companies already servicing the energy industries.
