Acoustic Doppler Aquatic Animal Monitoring (ADAAM) project A Discussion with Greg Trowse
The Acoustic Doppler Aquatic Animal Monitoring (ADAAM) project is advancing research led by Dr. Len Zedel of Memorial University with the support of Nova Scotia firm Luna Ocean. Greg Trowse of Luna Ocean took some time recently to respond to a few questions, sharing details of his collaboration with Dr. Zedel, talking about the importance of this work and what he hopes to achieve moving forward.
Wind, solar and tidal-generated electricity have different — but potentially complimentary — cyclic times, which creates some interesting possibilities. This project looks at how best to meet Nova Scotia’s electricity load requirements through a combination of energy storage, intermittent renewable energy output, thermal and hydro generation.
