Wales Green Energy Awards has recognized the achievements of two local tidal energy players during the ceremony held in Cardiff.
The awards, held on November 10, 2017, recognized the efforts of the Welsh marine body Marine Energy Wales by selecting the organization as the most outstanding advocate for green energy developments.
Also, the developer behind the proposed 320MW Swansea Bay tidal lagoon project, Tidal Lagoon Power, scooped the award for its supply chain development work.
David Clubb, Director of RenewableUK Cymru which organized the event, said: “It seems fitting that these awards are taking place at the same time as COP23 is being held in Bonn, given the importance of the renewable energy sector to global efforts to combat climate change.
“The last year has seen big changes; a collapse in the use of coal to generate electricity in the UK, a huge growth in offshore wind with a corresponding drop in costs, and the entry of energy storage into the mainstream of the electricity sector. We continue to enjoy strong political support, and are working hard to ensure that Wales sees as much value as possible from our sector’s activities.”
