Gwynedd Council was keen to investigate the market for electricity provision to the Snowdonia Enterprise Zone (SEZ) to potentially reduce electricity tariffs for the SEZ’s two locations in the region. This could incentivise large energy consumers across the electricity, environment, digital, and advanced manufacturing sectors to relocate within the SEZ region which would offer further economic benefits. IPA was commissioned to provide an independent market report to inform these considerations.
IPA undertook a number of activities to inform consideration of the electricity market in the SEZ:
IPA presented its key findings and recommendations to the SEZ Board to inform the Board’s consideration of development options for the SEZ’s two locations.
