The Minister was visiting Anglesey to hear more about plans for the Morlais tidal power scheme and the Hydrogen Hub which is planned for Holyhead. Both schemes are being led by Menter Môn, with Morlais being one of the proposed north Wales Growth Deal investments. Low Carbon Energy is one of the five programmes included in the North Wales Growth Deal, which is backed by £240 million from both the Welsh and UK Governments. The Deal offers the opportunity for £1.1 billion of investment across the north Wales region. The Minister met with representatives of the North Wales Growth Deal programme board, The Isle of Anglesey County Council and Menter Môn to hear about the plans and the potential benefits low carbon energy production can bring to communities in North West Wales. The plans for a Hydrogen Hub include the production of green hydrogen and a refuelling and distribution network. A feasibility study for the hub is currently underway.
