Energy UK responds to the Government's statement on the Swansea Tidal Lagoon project

Responding to the government’s statement on the Swansea Tidal Lagoon project, Lawrence Slade, chief executive of Energy UK said:

“It is obviously important to bear in mind costs to the consumer although we continue to believe that a diverse power portfolio best suits the UK and our ambitions to deliver a low carbon energy future for all.  The fall in the cost of offshore wind illustrates what can happen when industry and Government work together to reduce costs and we hope that tidal power can be revisited in the future.”
