Last year, we reported the government had issued 25 permits to Fred. Olsen Marine Renewables Ltd. allowing the company "to investigate the development" of tidal power projects at locations across the province. And it seems the Norwegian company continues to remain interested in British Columbia's renewable energy opportunities. According to a confidential agenda obtained by Public Eye via a freedom of information request, Energy, Mines and Petroleum Resources Minister Rich Neufeld met with Fred. Olsen Group of Companies chairman Fredrik Olsen, chief executive officer Annette Olsen and other company executives during his two-week European trade mission last November. Fred. Olsen is also proposing to develop a wind park project in Peachland.
