§ Lord Hylton
asked Her Majesty's Government:
When they expect that the first tidal lagoon or tidal impoundment scheme will start to generate electricity; and whether they will provide funds to speed up the development of a prototype or first production model. [HL887]
§ The Parliamentary Under-Secretary of State, Department of Trade and Industry (Lord Sainsbury of Turville)
The bringing forward of any scheme is a matter for the developer. Support for such a development would be available through the renewables obligation mechanism.
