Plans to generate electricity from the world’s first series of tidal lagoons have just been unveiled in the UK.
Please watch the short BBC video report –
The six lagoons – four in Wales and one each in Somerset and Cumbria – will capture incoming and outgoing tides behind giant sea walls, and use the weight of the water to power turbines.
Mr Davey told BBC News: “I can’t make a decision on this yet because discussions are ongoing. But I’m very excited by the prospect of tidal power.
“We have got some of the biggest tidal ranges in the world and it would be really useful if we could harness some of that clean energy.”
