Natural Energy Wyre has large scale support from across the community. With the help of everyone combined, we feel we can succeed in building the much needed Wyre Tidal Barrage.
We have received over 900 letters of support from local residents on both sides of the river, many with a real passion to bring clean energy to the North West. It is part of our wider remit and corporate social responsibility to help provide support to those that are in our community. The Wyre Tidal Gateway will not only provide jobs and training, but also ongoing financial assistance for worthy causes and projects. We will also be working with a nominated charity each year; more information will be announced closer to the project date.
Many of the UK’s leading minds on tidal energy have lent their support and all have recommended that the Wyre Tidal Barrage moves forward to the construction stage, Europe’s foremost thinkers on the topic such as Professor George Aggidis, Professor Roger Falconer and Chris Binnie.
There is substantial support and political backing across the parties, both nationally and locally. As well as working towards a renewable future, the Wyre Tidal Barrage will act as a means of flood control and assist in the creation of thousands of jobs.
