Green plan co-author lauds Link project; but developers fear being left out in cold

The co-author of the province’s renewable energy plan says the Maritime Link project should make it easier to get more green power on the grid, even though some developers indicated Tuesday they are concerned that may not happen.

Energy strategist David Wheeler told a Halifax renewable energy conference that he has heard industry concerns that the subsea cable project could put a damper on other opportunities in the province.

But Wheeler, incoming president of Cape Breton University, said he thinks the opposite will be true.

“If it works as it should … the more renewables we bring on in this province, the more that allows green energy to be sold elsewhere,” he said in response to an audience question.

Dartmouth site could help get more green power on grid

The Tufts Cove power plant in Dartmouth should be replaced in the coming years by an energy storage centre, a Dalhousie University engineering professor says.

Lukas Swan told a renewable energy conference in Halifax that the gas-fired thermal plant could become a 500-megawatt to 1,000-megawatt energy storage facility instead.
