Swansea Tidal Lagoon - the future?
You may not be aware that a considerable sum of money has gone into this project, mainly from the Welsh Assembly, that is, your money.
There is a dedicated website and a team of people lined up for the planning stage, now having no support from the UK Parliament.*
We must wait and see what is going to happen next, meanwhile look over the Tidal Lagoon website:
* Swansea tidal lagoon: Not appropriate to support it, minister says
UK Business Secretary Greg Clark rejects calls to support a £1.3bn tidal energy project in Swansea Bay, saying it would not be value for money.
The announcement brings an end to 18 months of waiting since an independent review, commissioned by the ministers, recommended building the lagoon.
Mr Clark told MPs the UK government was committed to renewable energy, but the Swansea proposal was not judged to be affordable.
