7 News Tidal lagoon technology potential highlighted THE COUNTRY’S leading


renewable energy trade association, RenewableUK, has welcomed a review of the benefits of tidal lagoon energy. The study was commissioned by the government, and carried out by the former Energy Minister, Charles Hendry. He said tidal lagoon technology


can deliver a secure supply of energy for a price that’s competitive in the long term – the equivalent of the cost of a pint of milk per household per year. He added that tidal power is a completely predictable source of energy. The review is significant for Tidal


Lagoon Power. The company secured planning consent in 2015 to build the world’s first tidal lagoon power plant in Swansea Bay. This 320 megawatt (MW) project will generate enough power to meet the annual needs of 155,000 homes. The company aims to begin


construction within a year of getting a final green light, following the successful conclusion of negotiations with the government. It is the first project of its kind in the world, marking the start of a whole new industrial sector. They company expects to see significant cost reductions as each further project is built.


Hugh McNeal, RenewableUK’s


Chief Executive, said: “It’s great to have this ringing endorsement of innovative technology and modern industry. The world’s first tidal lagoon in Swansea Bay can provide power for our national energy needs and create local jobs for decades to come. Government should finalise negotiations so that work can start on this important infrastructure project as soon as possible. This is a new growth sector with


huge potential to bring industrial- scale economic opportunities to the UK. Each new tidal lagoon will drive down costs due to economies of scale, benefitting consumers, as well as strengthening the security of our energy supply. “The UK’s future energy mix will


be powered by a broad range of low carbon technologies which can be delivered by British companies. This means investing today in new sources for tomorrow – including marine energy technologies such as wave, tidal stream, and tidal lagoons”. The Welsh Conservatives have


the findings of the independent review - published this week - into the feasibility and practicality of tidal lagoon energy. The review will back plans for a

the Environment - said he ‘fully’ supports, adding that it was now his expectation that the project will be carried forward. “I am very pleased that the


evidence submitted by the Welsh Conservative group has been backed by the findings of this review - the analysis and recommendations of which we fully support,” said David Melding AM. “Tidal energy holds great promise


to be the most reliable and resilient source of green energy available. It is our hope and expectation that this project will now be taken forward. “Wales led the way in the 19th


century as an energy economy based on coal. Now we have the prospect of leading the world in the generation of non-carbon renewable energy. “Indeed, the tidal lagoon offers


exciting opportunities for the whole Welsh economy in terms of jobs, manufacturing and research and development.” Suzy Davies, Welsh Conservative


South Wales West AM, added: “The findings and recommendations of the Hendry review are very welcome and I hope they will be the spur needed to take this project forward. “For some time now, there has


rightly been much excitement about the prospect of a tidal lagoon in Swansea, which could propel Wales to be global pioneers in the application of this exciting technology. “The benefits to the economy and


future energy needs of Wales, the UK and wider world of this technology are potentially massive and I look forward to seeing progress in making the project a reality.” A Welsh


Government


spokesperson said: “We very much welcome the publication of the Hendry review into the feasibility and practicality of tidal lagoon energy in the UK. This clearly presents Wales with significant potential opportunities. “Tidal lagoons provide an


opportunity to contribute towards growing a vibrant Welsh industry which delivers prosperity whilst supporting our wider decarbonisation objectives. “We welcome the observation


that there is a very strong case for Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon to be a small scale pathfinder project, subject to number of key approvals in place. “We will be considering the


content of the report and look forward to discussions with UK Government on how they intend to take the findings forward.

Swansea Tidal Lagoon: ‘ Tidal energy holds great promise’, says David MeldingAM Crabb behind the Lagoon project


P R E S E L I PEMBROKESHIRE MP Stephen Crabb has been a keen supporter of Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon from its earliest stages and was at the press launch of the Hendry report yesterday (Jan 12). Last month he brought together


MPs from all parties and led a debate in Parliament on the economic potential of tidal power. With the oil and gas industries


changing, Mr Crabb has long believed that the engineering industry in Pembrokeshire needs to be looking at new opportunities. Mr Crabb said: “I’m delighted


that the review has come out so favourably for tidal power. Both in and out of Government, I have made the case for investing in this


potentially huge new industrial opportunity.” “Here in Pembrokeshire we


have outstanding companies with the skills and experience to help build this new UK energy industry. There is no good reason why we should not be in the frame to benefit from the investment.” The company behind the


Swansea Bay proposal, Tidal Lagoon Power, say that Swansea would act as a pilot project for five much larger schemes in Cardiff, Colwyn Bay, Newport, Somerset and Cumbria. The Swansea Bay Tidal could

supply predictable, clean electricity for 155,000 homes for 120 years.


Mr Crabb added: “I now


urge the Government to act on Hendry’s recommendations and seize the opportunity given to u s .


Ministers need to make a swift decision and capture this huge economic o p p o r t u n i t y


that is in front of us.”
