Marine Renewables Canada has issued a request for proposals for research projects to be funded by Marine Renewables Canada in conjunction with the Standards Council of Canada’s Mirror Committee (SMC) to the International Electrotechnical Committee’s (IEC) Technical Committee 114 (TC114) – “Marine energy – Wave, tidal and other water current converters”.
To ensure that Canada maintains its leading role in the development of International Standards the IEC/TC114, it is critical that Canadians engage in research activities that will accelerate the development of standards and also ensure that Canadian strategic interested are well represented in the international process.
The request for proposals is a result of this mandate to maintain a leading role and is supported by the funding received through ecoEII project, RENE-048:”‘Development of Codes and Standards for Marine Energy- Wave and Tidal Energy Converters”.
SMC/IEC TC114 is soliciting proposals from Canadian industry and academic groups who are interested in performing research that will accelerate the development of international marine energy technical specification and standards currently being developed through IEC/TC 114.
The proposals must be submitted to Marine Renewables Canada by 23:59 EST, February 13th, 2015.
