Research, Education, Outreach

The Acadia Tidal Energy Institute is conducting research, education and outreach to promote responsible approaches to tidal energy development.


Situated right on the Bay of Fundy, home to the world's highest tides, Acadia University has been researching the effects of tidal energy for over 100 years!


Acadia Professors are teaching courses to help students and community members understand the power of the Bay of Fundy tides and how marine renewable energy is emerging worldwide.


We are working to ensure that information about local tidal energy and tidal energy research is readily available, to create a better understanding of the costs, benefits, opportunities and risks of tidal energy.

    Advancing knowledge of tidal energy that respects the environment and supports socioeconomic prosperity
