East Anglia: EEEGR plans Energy Roadshow series to highlight opportunities

THE East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) is launching a series of events to encourage businesses to diversify and grow within the energy sector supply chain.

Road show events will be held across the region during the autumn to help firms make the most of opportunities likely to be available over the coming years.

EEEGR chief executive Simon Gray said “This exciting new series of events gets us on the road around the region to really engage companies that want to know more about the energy sector and the rich opportunities right here on our doorstep.”

The events, which will outline the expert support and mentoring available to help companies, form part of a wider package of support available to businesses which is being delivered by EEEGR in partnership with Nautilus Associates and is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund.
