UK to build tidal lagoon power plants

The world's first electricity-generating tidal lagoons are to be built in six locations across Britain

Tidal Lagoon Power announced early this week that it had submitted an Environmental Impact Assessment scoping report for a tidal lagoon to be developed between Cardiff and Newport, in Wales.

The proposed tidal lagoon project would have anywhere between 1,800 MW and 2,800 MW of renewable energy capacity, giving a reliable annual output of between 4 TWh and 6 TWh.
