Cumbria has been included in plans to generate electricity from the world's first series of tidal lagoons.
The company behind the plans today confirmed that early feasibility studies show west Cumbria could support one of the six lagoons which will capture incoming and outgoing tides behind giant sea walls, and use the weight of the water to power turbines.
Tidal Lagoon Power says it wants to build the lagoons - four in Wales and one each in Somerset and Cumbria to generate 8% of the UK's electricity for an investment of £12bn.
The company is today submitting an environmental impact assessment scoping report for a tidal lagoon between Cardiff and Newport.
We’re developing plans for a Tidal Lagoon in West Cumbria. With one of the UK’s highest tidal ranges the West Cumbrian Coast holds significant potential for electricity generation and would underpin the region’s huge Energy Coast ambitions. It would also help bring about a range of economic, social and environmental benefits and help us develop new, low-carbon electricity for the next 120 years.
While this exciting opportunity is at an early stage, we’ll be working with stakeholders and local communities in the coming months to fully explore how we can deliver on West Cumbria Tidal Lagoon.
