About this event

A £1billion infrastructure project developed by Tidal Lagoon Power Limited, it will have an entirely predictable 495GWh output each year of clean, green electricity and will power more than 155,000 homes for 120 years – that’s about 11% of Wales’ domestic electricity.

Speaker Ioan Jenkins will look at the proposed development in Swansea and similar projects elsewhere.
