Dalhousie University's Dr. Dominic Groulx is using his Laboratory of Multi-phase Thermal Engineering to solve many of the novel challenges facing the tidal energy sector. With support from OERA, he’s currently researching the potential structural impact of the Bay of Fundy on tidal turbines. Dr. Groulx is also helping to develop the future of Nova Scotia’s tidal energy industry by recruiting students into the field. “Now we are graduating students who are tidal researchers. Those will be the researchers who drive the field for the next 40 years. Those are the people we want driving that field, because they picked it,” he says.
