Best performer in the UK for R&D

Locating in the East of England Energy Zone (EEEZ) gives businesses unparalleled access to world-leading research and innovation. Potential investors will become part of a region recognised as the best performer in the UK for R&D.

Driven by innovation and inspiration, it is second only to London for generating intellectual property – measured in terms of patents granted per capita.

The East of England is home to world leading university and private sector research organisations including the University of East Anglia, University of Cambridge, the Centre for Environment, Fisheries & Aquaculture Science (CEFAS) and The Welding Institute (TWI).

New offshore technologies continue to emerge. These include offshore desalination, the production of hydrogen using existing offshore infrastructure, combining offshore wind and gas to power offshore installations by wind power, or producing electricity from offshore gas and transmitting onshore using existing wind farm cable infrastructure.

The EEEZ team can facilitate introductions at the highest level for energy sector businesses to leading research organisations in the region.
