Anglesey Council is seeking £40M from the Welsh and UK governments to fund energy projects on the island. The council claims that funding for alternative projects is needed to make up for the suspension of work on the Wylfa nuclear plant. Anglesey Council leader Llinos Medi has asked the Welsh Government to provide £20M of additional investment for other energy projects and is asking the same of the UK government. The UK and Welsh governments have already committed £120M each for the North Wales Growth Deal. Medi claims the additional £40M fund is needed to fast track alternative energy schemes on the island including a tidal energy centre and a Nuclear Centre of Excellence. “A decision has been taken by the North Wales Economic Ambition Board that we would prioritise the projects coming to Anglesey because of the Wylfa Newydd developments,” Medi said.
