Fundy Ocean Research Center for Energy (FORCE) is looking to add a new Board Director to support its mission of advancing in-stream tidal energy technology.

FORCE is recruiting for a candidate with strong leadership experience and a track record of excellence in its field.

The candidate should be a strong supporter of sustainable development and environmental management, and above all interested in making a meaningful contribution to Nova Scotia’s clean energy future, FORCE said.

The center recently welcomed Janet MacMillan as the Board Chair, and Robert Fournier as the Board Director, to its team.

FORCE is Canada’s lead test facility for in-stream tidal energy technology, located in the Bay of Fundy.

As a not-for-profit research lab, FORCE collaborates with government, industry, academia and the public to better understand if this technology can play a safe, effective role in Canada’s energy future.

Since 2009, FORCE has built the electrical infrastructure to allow in-stream devices to deliver power to the provincial grid, and, according to FORCE, in partnership with academic and research institutions, invested C$15 million in research, monitoring and the Fundy Advanced Sensor Technology program, increasing understanding and scientific knowledge of the Minas Passage.

FORCE receives funding support from the Government of Canada, the Province of Nova Scotia, and participating developers.
