BBC News Marine energy: Wales urged to be ‘world leader’

Wales could be a world leader in marine energy and should make the industry a priority, a former energy minister has said.

Lord Peter Hain, who served under Tony Blair in 2001, said there was “massive untapped potential” around the Welsh coast.

He urged a mix of Welsh government and private investment to drive it forward.

A new industry report has identified 16 marine energy developers, with the hope of 3,000 jobs over the next 10 years.
