New Hope for Tidal Projects in South Wales

Wave of Optimism for Tidal Power Projects
, WesternMorningNews.co.uk (8/28/03), Andy Greenwood reports that the UK may reorganize its priorities for Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA) for South Wales which is necessary before wave and tidal energy projects can get the go-ahead. Right now, South Wales ranks at the bottom of the list of regions due for an SEA despite the fact that it offers some of the best opportunities in Europe to generate electricity form wave power and tidal streams. Renewable development is also expected to create hundreds of jobs in the region.
