Governor Baker recently signed an energy bill into law that, among other things brings new sources of renewable energy to the Commonwealth. While this is an important step, most of these resources come from long distances (Canadian hydro and offshore wind). Energy resources that exist right on our doorstep, or rather lap at our shores are also under development and have the potential to bring an enormous contribution to the North Shore economy. One company at the forefront is Littoral Power Systems (LPS) of New Bedford, MA, which designs, manufactures and sells tidal and river and wave power equipment.

At this breakfast, Littoral Power's David Duquette and John Ashburne, will address the role that Littoral power plays in sustainable energy resources and discuss opportunities for local municipalities to get government-backed power power-purchase contracts with local utilities.


John Asburne, Energy, Minerals, Power and Infrastructure Advisor to CFO CEO and Treasurer at Black Horse Advisors

David Duquette, CEO, Founder of Sceata Technology Group LLC
