    Nova Scotia sets five gigawatt target for offshore wind power by 2030

    September 20, 2022 - The Canadian Press


      HALIFAXNova Scotia is signalling its intent to make offshore wind power the foundation of its future energy supply with a target of five gigawatts generated from offshore turbines by 2030.

      Premier Tim Houston told reporters today the ambitious plan would triple the province's current total energy output of 2.5 gigawatts from all sources.

      Houston says while Nova Scotia is in a race with other jurisdictions around the world to develop an offshore wind industry, he believes the province has the proper wind speeds to make it competitive.

      He says the idea will be to develop wind energy for the production of green hydrogen for use in the province and for export.

      The premier says his government will be developing a green hydrogen action plan to be released in 2023.

      Houston says the first call for tenders through a competitive bid process is expected to be issued by 2025, with all offshore leases awarded by 2030.

      This report by The Canadian Press was first published Sept. 20, 2022.
