Tidal Power Experts in Jersey for Talks

Wednesday 17 May 09:50

Representatives from a company set up to generate renewable energy through tidal power are in Jersey this week to talk about their projects with States officers.

Tidal Lagoon Power is currently developing a national fleet of six tidal lagoons to meet up to eight per cent of UK electricity demand, or power for around 30 per cent of UK homes. It has permission to build the world’s first tidal lagoon power plant in Swansea Bay, Wales.

Representatives from the company will talk about the Swansea Bay project and what can be learnt from it. Jersey, like Swansea, has a big tidal range and States of Jersey officers are keen to learn more about opportunities for generating energy from tidal power.

The Minister for the Environment, Deputy Steve Luce is also meeting Tidal Lagoon Power representatives and is interested in hearing about their experiences, “We’d like to learn more about their work and explore whether there are any opportunities for Jersey. The Swansea tidal lagoon is an ambitious and exciting project, but the context is very different to Jersey’s. We’re aiming to understand more about how these big renewable energy projects work, and the potential advantages and challenges.”
