Tidal Power: Pembrokeshire

Volume 467: debated on Thursday 22 November 2007

To ask the Secretary of State for Business, Enterprise and Regulatory Reform what discussions he has had with (a) Lunar Energy and (b) Eon on the construction of a tidal power generation project off the North Pembrokeshire coast. (166212)

My officials have had one meeting with representatives of Lunar Energy Ltd. and E.ON UK plc to discuss a proposal to develop a pre-commercial tidal energy project off the Pembrokeshire coast. Subsequent to that meeting, a request for a formal scoping opinion under Regulation 7 of the Electricity Works (Environmental Impact Assessment) (England and Wales) Regulations 2000 has been made by E.ON UK plc in respect of that project.
