In the build up to an independent review due to be published later today by Charles Hendry, Friends of the Earth have stated that a tidal lagoon in Swansea Bay could play an important role in building a clean energy future.
Haf Elgar, acting director of Friends of the Earth Cymru, said:
“A tidal lagoon in Swansea Bay could play a significant role in generating clean energy in Wales, and will be an important test of this exciting new power source.
It is crucial that any potential impacts on wildlife and the wider environment are properly considered
“Tidal lagoons could have a big future, however it is crucial that any potential impacts on wildlife and the wider environment are properly considered and addressed before any new developments are given the go-ahead.
“New clean energy sources are important – but it is crucial that the government also ensures that adequate investment is targeted right now in low cost, renewable technologies, like solar and wind, that already generate a quarter of UK electricity.”
