EEEGR is particularly keen to help businesses which are not currently involved in the energy sector to find out ways that they could be, by way of support, guidance and introductions.

The first of the events takes place in Great Yarmouth on Friday, September 7, and the second in Ipswich a week later on September 14.

Future locations include Norwich, Ongar, Leiston, Cambridge, Lowestoft, Colchester and Harwich. For further details, call EEEGR on 01493 446535 or email supplychain@eeegr.com .
