The ethos of Tidal Lagoon Power (TLP) includes having reverence for nature at its core. Consequently the company places a strong emphasis on maintaining a high quality functioning environment. This is demonstrated through our investment in thorough Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) for our proposed lagoons; as well as our adherence to the principles and application of the Habitats Regulations through Habitats Regulations Assessment and the Water Framework Directive through WFD compliance assessment.
TLP has invested in a detailed Evidence Plan process for its future lagoon programme, as demonstrated through its implementation for Tidal Lagoon Cardiff, involving strong engagement with the Statutory Nature Conservation Bodies and environmental Non-Governmental Organisations (NGOs). It has also already invested in a long-term, dedicated nature conservation programme that will enhance biodiversity alongside the generation of clean energy – the Ecosystem Enhancement Programme (EEP).
