Senedd Member Paul Davies has visited RWE Power Station to discuss floating offshore wind leasing opportunities in the Celtic Sea. Mr Davies was also given an overview of the Pembroke Net Zero Centre and discussed new innovative technologies needed for a low carbon future, including hydrogen production and Carbon Capture and Storage. Following the discussion, there was a site tour to show Mr Davies some of the work currently being done by RWE to decarbonise.
Mr Davies said, “RWE is Wales’ largest energy generator and producer of renewable electricity, and it was great to hear more about their plans for the future. The Pembroke Net Zero Centre further demonstrates RWE’s commitment to the decarbonisation of Wales and the UK and I was impressed by the work they have already done in this area. We had a really interesting discussion about green hydrogen and developing opportunities with new technologies to compliment their work so far on this agenda.”
He added, “The deployment of floating wind represents a multi-billion-pound clean energy investment and economic development opportunity for Pembrokeshire and further afield. RWE is engaging with major employers and with the supply chain to identify the requirements needed to build a resilient and prosperous supply chain going forward.”
