In April 2009, the OEER/OETR Joint Tidal Area Subcommittee (ASC) held a two-day Workshop on Hydrodynamic Modeling in the Bay of Fundy that focused on presentations from local and national experts on existing hydrodynamic models and current research. The following is a list of the top three research priority areas identified at the hydrodynamic modeling workshop and previous workshops.
- Modeling of sediment behaviour;
- Modeling and Resource Assessment, i.e. assessment of the size of the energy resource and optimization of energy extraction; and
- Far-field effects Modeling, e.g. the implications of energy extraction and extreme events on water flows, stratification, and sediment dispersion.
Please find attached the Invitation for Expressions of Interest (EOI) from the OEER and OETR Associations for the funding of research projects in the following areas:
- Sediment Dynamics and Effects
- Effects on animal behaviour
- Ecosystem Responses
- Grid Integration and Optimization
- Monitoring Technologies focusing on any or all of the above
For additional information on the Associations and the EOI please visit our web portal at http://offshoreenergyresearch.ca and follow the link to the EOI Tidal Energy Research.
Deadline for submission of Expressions of Interest: 4:00 p.m. Atlantic time, June 15, 2009
Please read the EOI carefully and follow all instructions. All responses must be submitted as an email attachment to firstname.lastname@example.org
The Joint Tidal Area Subcommittee is expected to review the submissions received in response to the EOI, identify those deemed promising, and ask them to formally respond to a Request for Proposals (RFP).
Thank you and we look forward to your response,
