Wales’ energy and environment sector employs over 58,000 people generating over £4.8 billion in revenue.
The sector is strong in energy and waste management, water treatment, environmental monitoring and the built environment. It is a dynamic sector with rapid innovation in areas of marine energy initiatives and low-carbon projects, utility companies investing in sustainable energy sources and the deep sea ports of Wales are equipped to support renewable projects.
