Marine Renewables Canada, as the lead proponent, aimed to develop international standards for the marine renewable energy industry through the International Electrotechnical Commission’s Technical Committee 114 (IEC TC 114). They formed a Mirror Committee to ensure Canada’s input and needs were considered in developing these standards. The project successfully resulted in the development of 17 international standards, exceeding the original objective. Canadian participation was crucial in influencing the content of these standards. Additionally, two research projects were completed to ensure safety at test centers for tidal energy technology based on IEC standards. The establishment of these standards has provided a solid foundation for the growing marine renewable energy industry. The updated Strategic Business Plan Description aligns the standards with the United Nations Sustainability Goals, benefiting Canada and Canadians directly and indirectly.
