Elisa Obermann

Executive Director, Marine Renewables Canada

Big tides = Big opportunities – but realizing the opportunity hasn’t been so easy! It’s been an upstream paddle for the nascent marine renewables industry in Canada, marked by skepticism, financing challenges, and policy hurdles. But in the face of such unbridled economic opportunity, and the Bay of Fundy’s massive tidal range, Elisa is connecting an equally broad range of manufacturers, energy producers and investors to build Canada’s marine renewable energy supply chain and carve out a leading position for Canada in the global market, capitalizing on the significant business, job, and economic opportunities offered by the emerging marine renewables sector.
