Generating clean, green renewable power from an untapped wind resource, Gwynt Glas will generate up to 1GW of energy, enough power for approximately 920,000 homes.
Reduced CO2 emissions
Floating wind will directly contribute to the UK and Welsh governments’ net zero targets. Gwynt Glas will save approximately 1,500,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide each year.
Job Creation & Economic Benefit
Floating offshore wind in the Celtic Sea could deliver over 3,000 jobs and £682 million in local supply chain opportunities by 2030, supporting coastal communities and creating long-term benefits for the region.
Floating offshore wind farms take advantage of consistent and stronger wind with less visual impact for communities on land, whilst reducing our reliance on harmful fossil fuels.
Security of Energy Supply
Developing home grown green energy means that we can increase our own energy supplies and reduce our reliance on global energy sources. This will also help to stabilise prices and reduce costs.
