The Pathway Program is a technology development and testing program focused on identifying approved environmental monitoring solutions for ocean energy projects. It is a coordinated and focused partnership between industry, academia and regulators. Monitoring and reporting fish and marine mammal interactions with ocean-based devices is essential and approved monitoring solutions are critical to advancing the tidal energy industry.
Canada's existing strengths in ocean instrumentation, data analytics and science support innovation. As a result of this program, Canadian suppliers will have new technology to sell globally to the tidal energy, offshore wind, and other sectors of the ocean economy.
