Anglesey, home to a major tidal energy project

Morlais is a Menter Môn project which aims to benefit local communities, the economy and environment through renewable low carbon electricity generation.

The Morlais project manages a 35 km2 area of seabed near Holy Island, Anglesey. It has the potential to become one of the largest tidal stream energy sites in the world with a generating capacity of up to 240MW of clean electricity.

The first stage of the project aims to secure consent for the development of the demonstration zone. Community and stakeholder consultation and engagement has been a key part of this process. The consent application was submitted in the autumn of 2019, a decision is expected by Welsh Ministers later in 2021. Read more
