Economic benefits and key project dates

Energy Island™-related developments are expected to bring a significant boost to our economy during both construction and operational phases. These benefits are already beginning to stack up.

Isle of Anglesey County Council and the North Wales Economic Ambition Board are working hard with the project owners and key stakeholders to ensure that the economic benefits – jobs for local people and work for local businesses – stay within the local and regional area.
