Wales 'could produce renewable energy'

Renewable energy could be created in south-west Wales after the region was described as being well-placed to capitalise on the growth of green industries.

According to the Sustainable Development Commission (SDC), Wales can take advantage of the tidal power and solar energy it could produce to generate renewable energy.

SDC commissioner for Wales Peter Davies stated that there is currently a rush to put together the renewable energy developments which can take the sector forwards and create green jobs.

Speaking to thisissouthwales.co.uk, he said: "If we are to create green jobs here in Wales, we must not get left behind. South-west Wales is well-placed to produce clean energy."

Wales is the most recent region of the UK to be praised for its renewable energy production opportunities, after available resources in Scotland were described as "phenomenal" by Leonie Green, external affairs spokeswoman at the Renewable Energy Association.

She added that Scotland has a "fantastic" opportunity to create jobs in clean UK energy as a result.
