Brookfield Renewable and OpenHydro have entered a Joint Venture partnership called Tidal Ventures. Our ambition is to innovate and lead the way in the field of tidal energy for the benefit of both our local communities as well as the wider environment.

Through Tidal Ventures, we are harnessing years of experience, insight, research and technological solutions that both Brookfield and OpenHydro have to offer.

OpenHydro

OpenHydro, a DCNS company, is a technology business that designs, manufactures and installs tidal energy systems.

The vision of OpenHydro is to harness the ocean's immense energy for the benefit of all by deploying arrays of tidal turbines beneath the world's oceans, enabling our customers to supply renewable energy that is silent, invisible, predictable, cost effective and in harmony with the environment.

OpenHydro has a project portfolio spanning Canada, France, Ireland, Scotland and the UK’s Channel Islands. Their utility partners around the world include EDF, Brookfield Renewable, Emera and SSE Renewables. OpenHydro has built a reputation of working closely with many communities, engaging local facilities and resources wherever possible, in Ireland, Orkney, Canada and France.

Already with a number of awards for its innovations in the field of renewable energy technology, OpenHydro has achieved many industry firsts. They were the first to deploy a tidal turbine at the European Marine Energy Centre (EMEC), first to connect to and generate electricity from tidal streams onto the UK National Grid and first to successfully demonstrate a method of safely and economically deploying and recovering turbines directly on the seabed.
