Hi there. Can I tell you what I dream of doing?
I want to get wave and tidal stream technology deployed in Wales. I want to get the right development in the right location that will deliver sustainable, renewable energy in a way that benefits the marine environment. Through doing this, I also want to enable local, skilled jobs and efficient supply chain to the areas.
It's all part of making a better world.
It will be a world with less greenhouse gas emissions from energy generation as we harness energy from the sea to meet our needs. The marine environment is in an enhanced condition. Successful technology companies will be established and local jobs and supply chain thriving.
This is really going to help people.
The impact of my vision will be mainly felt by local communities who have their energy generated by the wave and tidal devices. People as a whole as we move away from fossil fuels. Local people and supply chain as have created a sustainable industry. Users of the marine environment.
It's not just about having an idea though - here are the things I know I can achieve:
Renewable energy generation from wave and tidal stream
Proven technology with little to no environmental impact
Creation of local, skilled jobs
I'm going to make this happen, and this is how I know it'll make a difference.
The number of wave and tidal projects in the water and measuring their contribution to the energy needs. Environmental monitoring demonstrating little to no environmental impact, meaning less need for resource intensive monitoring. Meaningful employment rates increased.
Thanks for listening to me. Will you help me build a better world?
