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.
Why did you apply for an internship at OERA?
I applied for an internship at OERA because of my educational background in a Master of Public Administration program and experience in a government policy setting, specifically that of Nova Scotia’s Department of Environment. Being able to work in the field of energy and renewables was a huge draw for me as I wanted to learn more about Nova Scotia’s efforts to mitigate and adapt to climate change.
