The Government recognises the potential that exists in harnessing tidal energy around the coastline of the UK.

That is why we are commissioning an independent strategic review to assess the case for tidal lagoons and consider whether they could represent value for money for the consumer.

Government will carefully consider the recommendations from the review before making decisions on future development of tidal lagoons.
