Great Yarmouth is on the doorstep of a pioneering revolution in energy generation. If tapped into, this could define the future of the region for decades to come, presenting opportunities for businesses and local residents alike.
The UK has been a world leader in offshore wind energy since 2008, with as much capacity already installed as the rest of the world combined. The vast majority (70%) of this capacity is located on the East of England Coast, on the doorstep of Peel Ports Great Yarmouth. Even more exciting are the future ambitions of this sector.
There are nearly 20GW of offshore windfarms within reach of Great Yarmouth which are currently either in development, planning or consented stage. To put this into context, this additional capacity could supply up to 14 million homes with energy.
We are now presented with a once-in-a-generation opportunity for Great Yarmouth and Norfolk to tap into this major emerging industry, and at the centre of this sits Peel Ports Great Yarmouth.
We’re planning to embark on a wide-scale investment programme to transform Great Yarmouth into a pioneering supply hub involving a number of different businesses. Crucial to our success is an open dialogue with businesses and our other stakeholders.
The first part of this process involves finding out about your business challenges and how our investment plans can support you for the next few decades. To help with this, we have created a short survey to gather opinions and identify some options.
