SHOW NOTES

Renewable energy is a key growth sector for our region, with ideal locations across Wales, such as the coastline and mountains allowing for tidal and wind to generate our power. We speak to a number of key businesses and organisations within the renewable energy sector about what is currently happening and what needs to happen in order to enable growth within the sector and allow wider access to clean, green power. The UK & Welsh governments have made commitments to bring carbon emissions to net zero by 2050, with Wales’ target to achieve a net zero carbon public sector by 2030. We ask our roundtable to share their perspectives on announcements the government have made, and if our governments are putting in the infrastructure and investments required to grow the renewable energy sector.
