Energy businesses across the East of England are being urged to take part in a major new survey which will chart the health of the sector and help ensure its future wellbeing.

The aim is to build up a much better picture of the region’s diverse energy world and its supply chain, estimated to employ up to 15,000 people, and help influence where future efforts and resources should be directed.

The online survey is being launched by regional energy 
organisation the East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) in association with PwC, RBS and Mills and Reeve.

EEEGR chief executive Simon Gray wants every energy-related company to take part so that the results can be as authoritative and accurate as possible and create the greatest impact on behalf of the industry.

Questions range from issues such as training and retaining and attracting staff to finance, research, location, transport, infrastructure and bad payers.

“With the help of industry, we have compiled a straightforward list of fairly basic questions in a survey which will take 10 to 15 minutes to complete,” said Mr Gray.

“From it, we will gain an invaluable picture of the state of the industry each year and how it is performing.

“It is something we can refine and repeat and, over the years, calculate the health, strength and weaknesses of our industry in the East of England.

“The data will help us in our discussions and deliberations with Government, local authorities, skills providers and the industry itself and allow EEEGR to determine where it should be focusing its maximum attention.”

To take part in the survey visit: https://www.surveymonkey.com/s/YWJVP3K.

The results will be analysed and presented at a special event to be organised by EEEGR, which is supported by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

EEEGR represents more than 350 members across the supply chain. It is a non-profit, business-led group committed to the sustained development of the energy sector in the region and the continued success of its members.

It would like to hear from any energy-related business across the supply chain which is based in the region, whether it is in oil and gas, windpower, renewables, nuclear or other energy sources.
