New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership has announced its plans to lead the creation of the UK’s first All Energy Industry Council. Announced on Thursday 16 May, one of its key priorities will be the development of an offshore wind cluster in line with planned investment and development. The council, which has government backing, will be chaired by Mark Goodall, Senior Manager of Aker Solutions and is made up of energy producers, local authorities, business groups and a member trade body. Chair of New Anglia Local Enterprise Partnership Doug Field said: “Already 52% of the UK’s offshore wind power capacity is generated in Norfolk and Suffolk and Bacton Gas Terminal provides on average 30% of the UK’s gas supply. […] There is immense opportunity for economic and business growth with the right strategic direction and delivery.”
