Wales' Story

Using our sea as a power source is the perfect, natural fit for Wales. 

Did you know?

  • Our Atlantic-facing coastline produces a high energy wind and wave climate
  • Wales has the second highest tidal range in the world
  • Powerful tidal streams wrap around the North and South coast
  • Pembrokeshire has the highest concentration of wave resource in Wales.

Marine Renewable Energy

The UK Government has committed to decarbonising our electrical power system by 2035 and achieve net zero by 2050.  As a clean, reliable source of power, marine renewable energy will play a vital role in these ambitions while regenerating coastal communities with new skilled jobs and sustainable businesses.
