Severn EstuaryBoth sides of the Severn Estuary are already home to some of the most exciting marine power companies in the world. There is an innovative mix of cutting-edge research and technology start-ups in the renewables sector. A solid supply chain, including some global leaders in energy consultancy, is supported by some of the best infrastructure in the country – an excellent rail and motorway network, development land and a number of ports including one of the biggest in the UK.

In a world hungry for energy, there is potential for the Severnside region to become a global centre for marine renewables – exploiting its natural resources, and a number of leading universities, to become a hub for clean energy innovation.

The prospect of a whole new generation of technologies, creating thousands of jobs over many decades, is tantalisingly close.
