New network for the environment industry
A new network aimed at helping businesses and organisations in the energy and environmental industries to meet and connect has been launched by RENEW.
RENEW is an organisation which assists with the delivery of commercial energy and environmental technology projects across North East England.
RENEW helps low carbon energy and environmental technology projects make the transition from development to the marketplace.
The new network The Energy and Environmental Industries Forum (EEIF) will connect the diverse range of companies operating in the sector through a directory, an events programme, jobs database, daily news feed and weekly newsletter.
The network will primarily focus on supporting the sector in the North East but hopes to appeal to national bodies and businesses too.
Speaking of the launch, RENEW director, John Barton, said: "There are over 1,000 businesses and organisations operating in the energy and environmental marketplace in the North East.
"And this number is set to increase as the region strives to establish itself at the forefront of the UK's low carbon and sustainable energy drive.
"We believe there is a real need to bring everyone together in one place to connect, share expertise and knowledge, while supporting the trade and supply chain and helping members to enjoy tangible commercial results.
"The EEIF will fulfill this need and membership levels are growing each day, with a diverse range of organisations interacting and benefiting from the services offered."
Membership is free to the network and you can find out more by visiting their website. Alison Brown
