About this event

At 320MW installed capacity, Swansea Bay Tidal Lagoon will be the largest marine energy development in the world. 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.

The South Branch G & S Group would like to invite you to this year's debate, consisting of a panel of experts who will each give a short presentation prior to the floor being open for questions. We are lucky enough to be welcoming some of the senior figures who are making this pivotal project become a reality.

Confirmed panellists are:

  • Mike Case, Head of Turbines at Tidal Lagoon Power
  • Iain Roberts, Associate Maritime Engineer at Atkins
  • Bill Cooper, Managing Director, ABP Marine Environmental Research Ltd
  • Dr Philip Ashton, Principal Lecturer, The Built Environment, University of Brighton
