Charles Hendry’s recently published review of tidal lagoons was commissioned by Energy Secretary Amber Rudd in May 2016. In his review Charles has looked at how tidal lagoons would help meet our energy priorities – security of supply, decarbonisation, UK economic opportunities/jobs and affordability. He has concluded that there would be ‘no regrets’ in moving forward with a pathfinder project at Swansea and in order to develop a wider fleet of tidal lagoons, the Government should prepare a National Policy Statement and create a Tidal Power Authority.
Charles Hendry will speak about the findings from his review at a BIEE/EFL meeting on March 1st .
