Introduction

Tidal lagoons represent affordable and sustainable infrastructure that can:

  • generate indigenous, low carbon electricity at scale;
  • create long term UK employment;
  • catalyse a long term UK hydroelectricity manufacturing and engineering industry;
  • promote biodiversity;
  • promote local community resilience and pride; and
  • allow UK institutions and the general public to invest in and take long-term ownership of our natural power assets

Our first project, Tidal Lagoon Swansea Bay, establishes a scalable blueprint for our programme. Beyond this, we aim to develop, construct and operate a fleet of tidal lagoons to meet up to 8% of UK electricity demand. This fleet will exploit the opportunities that tidal lagoons offer for social, economic and environmental transformation and we will progress projects that contribute positively in each area.
