Industry Overview

Marine Energy

Wales has the potential to generate around 10 GW from marine energy when the Severn Estuary resource is included.

Access to our major marine energy locations is swift which enables hassle free travel by our project partners to do business with our supply chain and academics. This also means that anyone connecting to the grid has easy access to consumers on their doorstep.
