Former Wealden MP Charles Hendry

Former Wealden MP Charles Hendry was in the news this week after undertaking a review of the viability of hydro power.

The former energy minister, who stepped down as Wealden MP before the general election in May 2015, was commissioned by the government to write to write the report which concluded the technology would make a ‘strong contribution’ to the UK’s energy supply.

Read more about Mr Hendry’s report, and how it backs plans for a £1.3bn total lagoon in Swansea Bay, on the BBC website: Tidal lagoon: £1.3bn Swansea Bay project backed by review.
