With nuclear, tidal, wave and wind technologies at the forefront of energy development, the Fylde Coast is ideally positioned - both geographically and geologically - to drive and capitalise on this burgeoning industry.

The region is already home to 80 energy sector businesses. With the huge potential for renewable tide, wind and wave power generation, the capacity for commercial growth is significant.
