We are excited to play a lead role in assisting non-profit Energy Solutions for Vancouver Island launch a request for proposals for their first community solar PV demonstration project with Nanaimo Foodshare. SRM Projects helped prepare the RFP and other procurement documents, including a solar PV installation specification which will be used on all of the other ESVI demonstration projects. We look forward to seeing ESVI’s first solar PV demonstration project come to fruition in spring 2017! For more about our work with ESVI, click here.
SRM Projects is pleased to be the industry sponsor of a research and development project completed by BC technology firms Dynamic Systems Analysis and Mavi Innovations and supported by Marine Renewables Canada and the Standards Council of Canada Mirror Committee to IEC/TC114 through a grant from NRCan’s EcoEnergy II program. Titled “Tidal and River Energy Converter Debris Impact Load and Cable Snag Risk Quantification“, the project assessed the impact of floating debris on hydrokinetic energy converters in oceans and rivers as well as the risk of snagging these devices with marine tow cables, both important issues to understand before deploying marine renewable energy systems. This work is expected to provide valuable guidance for emerging marine renewable energy standards being developed by Canada and other members of the International Electrotechnical Committee.
