The report was launched at the Marine Energy Wales 2017 Conference by Ken Skates, Cabinet Secretary for Infrastructure and Economy, who said: “This latest report is very encouraging and highlights the rapid growth of the marine energy sector and its contribution to the Welsh economy. We have a truly excellent hub of supply chain businesses and facilities in Wales that are ready and able to take advantage of opportunities in the sector.
“We therefore aim to build on Wales’ reputation, working in partnership with industry, to ensure we are not only ‘open for business,’ but are once again seen as a global centre for energy, not only as a generator of marine energy but as an exporter of knowledge, technologies and services.”
The report covers the wave, tidal stream and tidal range sectors across Wales and demonstrates that marine energy is fast becoming a dynamic and exciting part of the Welsh economy.
