A report into the future of a pioneering tidal lagoon in Swansea is to be released today.
The long-awaited Hendry review has assessed the strategic case for the £1.3 billion project and whether the technology will provide an affordable solution to green energy in the UK.
The independent review was carried out by Charles Hendry who was Minister of State for Energy from May 2010 to September 2012.
It's thought a positive report could set the wheels in motion for the scheme - which would see a 9.5km-long sea wall built in Swansea Bay between the River Tawe and Neath. It would also house a visitor centre and facilitate sporting activities.
Similar schemes have been discussed for Newport and Cardiff.
