Energy: Electricity Generation

Volume 716: debated on Thursday 14 January 2010

Question

Asked by

To ask Her Majesty's Government when they expect to assess the Wave Hub project for electricity generation off the coast of Cornwall. [HL654]

The Government formally assessed the business case for the Wave Hub project early last year to ensure value for money to the taxpayer. Construction on the project began in late 2009 and is due for completion in August 2010 with the first wave energy devices expected to be deployed in 2011. The project's progress is being monitored and will be assessed by funders (including Government) in the normal way once it is complete.
