WSF 2014: The Low Carbon Anglesey Energy Island Vision
Wednesday, 23 July 2014 from 18:00 to 19:30 (BST)
San Francisco, California
London, United Kingdom
Imagine an island with just 70,000 inhabitants having one of the highest levels of low carbon energy generation per person in the world...
While Aberdeen is recognised as Scotland's fossil fuel capital, a radically different vision is now emerging from Anglesey. Within a decade, a huge and diverse new portfolio of low carbon energy generation will be under way - on land and in the surrounding sea.
Low carbon energy sources comprising nuclear and vast amounts of offshore wind are likely to be the main players, while solar, biomass and tidal stream will also play a part. Which innovative energy technologies will be deployed? What will be the consequences of Wales consolidating its position as a major national exporter of electricity - to England and Ireland? How is this a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity for exciting new jobs at the cutting edge of low carbon energy?
