A new company is being launched to develop tidal energy along the coast of North Wales.

North Wales Tidal Energy & Coastal Protection will explore the possibilities of building tidal lagoons which will create sustainable energy.

Based in St Asaph, NWTE aim to work with local communities and business people to create a world-leading tidal energy programme.

Once completed, the company says North Wales will benefit from cheaper electricity and coastal communities will be safer from flood risks.

This is a major infrastructure project that we are addressing, with benefits here in North Wales and beyond. We are determined to protect the beautiful environment in which we live while providing power, amenity and employment for the long-term.
