I see Wylfa power plant has been put on “indefinate hold”. Gone the way of the lagoon, and put the entire north wales development deal in jeopardy. Are we really surprised?

Irony is that the gov delayed the announcement that they were pulling thier investment for the lagoon so that they could “bury it” with the Wylfa good news story. Where’s the good news now? Another manifesto pledge gone?

Another Tory feck up.
I hated Thatcher but one thing you couldn't accuse her of was incompetence.
This government is the biggest bunch of incompetent, greedy, slimy feckwits ever assembled in one place.
Thank you Tory voters, you will be the ones responsible when the country is sitting around it's candles shivering in ten years' time.

If only the head of Hitachi had given some warning of this, for example, by giving an interview in March 2016, prior to the vote, stating that Hitachi would review all UK investment decisions including Wylfa in the event of the UK leaving the EU and would be likely to remove investment from the country resulting in significant job losses.

Oh wait...

Although this is bad news not only for Ynys Mon but Wales, i do think that Wales is perfect for renewable energy scheme,s . Not only the big projects like Swansea bay but, small community scheme,s. The potential for hydro especially are endless. And sa more projects are rolled out, both big and small, costs would reduce.

Well don't expect that to happen any time soon as all of that relies on outside investment coming into our country.

Your correct on the bigger schemes, but small community projects, for example a small hydro unit on a small stream in or near a village or small town, is more than achievable. roll lots of these small schemes out over the country, and a noticable change would be felt.

What is needed is nationalisation of the energy generation and distribution industry so that it can be correctly planned and funded in the interests of the people of Britain, not in the interests of shareholders of foreign private companies (the only country in Europe where this is allowed to happen, by the way).

I think so. None of it happens without significant government subsidies or loans in any case. ~£8-10bn of public money gets siphoned into the oild & gas industry every year already, with god knows how much of that ending up in the pockets of overseas shareholders/owners.

BBC Wales news reporter put that list to Alun Cairns earlier, describing it as a record of failure to deliver on large scale investment and infrastructure projects.

His response was that they were going to invest £1.3 Billion in the M4 relief road, and Wales gets more funding per person than England anyway, so we should all be thanking him and his Tories for all they’ve done for us.

What a massive arrogant “see you next Tuesday”

Great post.

Alun Cairns is the worst living Welshman.

The National Grid is not designed in a way to make that quite so feasible. They would (do) need to make the grid a distributable grid with "local" energy storage/distribution capabilities...Think giga-batteries and molten salts storage etc.

Probably between £8 and £10 billion I'd take a stab at Leon. Rough guess...

Spot on.
There is a big shift taking place away from fossil fuels, diesel and petrol cars are being discouraged, electric trains and cars are being encouraged. Our power generating infrastructure is aging, we are already importing electricity and with demand going up there is going to come a time when demand outstrips supply. You can’t develop a significant generating capacity overnight, it takes time to identify sites, buy them, design power stations, secure planning permission, get the tenders and contractors sorted, order the building material and technical kit and then build the things. There may also be a need to build pylons etc.

This stuff can’t be done overnight and needs proper planning, it needs central government oversight and not be left to market forces.

There is no real alternative to fossil fuels. Wind, solar, tidal, can't supply the demand and too expensive as well. Nuclear is too expensive.

Well some good news then:
- Besides the small matter of a brexit vote; this week the English goverment finally approved the viking link cable to Denmark... took them 2 years longer than the Danish goverment.

- Here in Denmark, on average 45% of the electricity used comes from wind/solar... mainly wind of cause; that percentage is getting higher for each year as new offshore parks are added.

- Wind and solar are now cheaper than coal; besides the health benefit. Admittedly wind is of more interest in our part of the world and United Kingdom/Ireland have so much coastline so there are few excuses.

Disclaimer; I have been working in the wind industry for two years (programmer) and have had solar for 6+ years… no electricity bills for me ;-)

I appreciate that Nuclear is expensive and I would rather not have it, but fossil fuels won’t last here for ever. What we need is a clear coherent strategy from Central Government to meet the challenges ahead, something we dont seem to have at the moment.

well 5,77 million; so yes it is easier to implement, but as such the investment is proportional
