Marine Energy Wales Welcomes IWA’s Report

David Jones, project director, Marine Energy Wales

Marine Energy Wales has welcomed the recent report by the Institute of Welsh Affairs (IWA) which outlines how Wales could make the transition to 100% renewable energy by 2035.

The report details a significant role for marine energy in delivering a renewable future.

The report, “A plan for Wales’ renewable energy future” is the culmination of three years of research by IWA and sets out 10 urgent and essential actions for transitioning to a renewable energy future. Getting ahead in marine energy is one of these 10 actions, and the report states that Wales should establish a global advantage by making marine energy and floating offshore wind technology niche Welsh services.

David Jones, project director, Marine Energy Wales, said, “It is positive to see marine energy playing a key role in this comprehensive study and we look forward to working with stakeholders in delivering the ambitions. A transition to a low carbon economy has never been so critical and our oceans will need to play a significant role if we are to mitigate climate change and the impacts upon the future generations.”
