Excerpt from BBC.
A marine energy project that uses the water between Bardsey Island and the mainland to create electricity has been backed by the Welsh Government.
A total of £1.2m has been sunk into the Enlli tidal energy project in north Wales.
That generates power by using the tide between Bardsey Island and the Llŷn Peninsula.
Nova Innovation, which is behind the scheme say this will make Bardsey the first “blue energy island.”
That is because the rock – which has only a handful of residents – would no longer have to rely on diesel for power.
Blue energy is created by harnessing power from tides, waves or rivers.
