They will also examine next steps in the development of the Swansea Tidal Lagoon and Wylfa Newydd projects. There will be keynote contributions from Mark Shorrock, Chief Executive, Tidal Lagoon Power and a senior speaker from Horizon Nuclear Power.
 
Further sessions examine Walesโ€™ access to the Contracts for Difference (CfD) mechanism and the potential for future access to CfD for onshore wind with the second allocation round already underway.
