Hull and the East Riding of Yorkshire area is the first choice as the renewables capital of the UK. Built on its port activity, the region is ideally located for the renewable energy sector to take advantage of its premium port capacity, infrastructure and unique skill set.
The City and Port are perfectly positioned within 12 hours sailing time of the key Round 2 and 3 offshore wind developments in the North Sea and can offer the offshore wind industry an excellent range of opportunities for manufacturing, pre-assembly and installation.
Original Equipment Manufactures
The Inward Investment strand provides a co-ordinated and proactive inward investment campaign to attract Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and their associated tier 1 and 2 supply chain companies to invest in the area and build a co-located value chain. A dedicated team provides support to assist companies investing in the region and advises on processes such as site selection, planning and building control, funding, and skills and employment, to ensure investment decisions runs smoothly.
UK and Overseas Marketing
Local businesses are encouraged to seek opportunities in the renewable energy sector by raising their profiles in overseas markets.
Inward Investment also supports a series of renewable energy exhibitions under the Humber Renewables banner. Financial support is available for local companies wishing to collectively exhibit at these events.

- Delivering overseas trade and networking activity
