The issues and myths surrounding the Severn Barrage Power Project will be explored in a presentation given by a University expert at the prestigious Cardiff Breakfast Club.

Professor Roger Falconer, of the School of Engineering, will address the early morning meeting on Tuesday 16 June 2009 and will highlight the impacts of the Severn Barrage on those living and working in Cardiff and the region.

Professor Falconer, Halcrow Professor of Water Management and Director of the Hydro-environmental Research Centre in the School, is at the forefront of the debate about the proposed Barrage. He consults regularly on major UK and international hydro-environmental Projects and is a member of the Government's Expert Panel for the Severn Tidal Power Project.

The Cardiff Breakfast Club is a monthly business networking meeting and is sponsored by Bank of Scotland, Morgan Cole, Marsh and the Western Mail.

Professor Falconer said: "I am looking forward to presenting my findings and views on the various options for tidal power from the Severn Estuary and discussing the opportunities and challenges for Cardiff and Wales of acquiring tidal renewable energy from this unique estuary".
