The Norfolk & Suffolk region is a global leader in offshore wind. Shallow seas, deep water ports and ideal weather conditions of the Southern North Sea offer developers the perfect environment for billions of pounds worth of investment.
With more than half a century of offshore experience in oil and gas behind it, Norfolk & Suffolk has a unique blend of ports, infrastructure, expertise and skills. It has a well-established offshore wind supply chain and available land for scale up and growth.
Continued investment offshore is backed by investment onshore, including a new state of the art Offshore Wind Skills Centre, upgrades to the major ports at Great Yarmouth and Lowestoft and new Operations & Maintenance facilities by the key industry players.
The UK government continues to support the sector in the region with strong political backing and with incentives and assistance on offer to expanding companies.
EEEGR, the East of England Energy Group, is a membership organisation based in Great Yarmouth for companies in the energy sector. It provides business introductions, networking opportunities, sector conferences, free job advertising, and up-to-date industry intelligence.
Together, Norfolk & Suffolk has internationally recognised specialisations in these three sectors. Our region is home to major global companies, leading edge R&D, expert talent pools and supportive networks.
