Businesses in Cornwall and the Isles of Scilly wanting to learn more about opportunities in the growing marine offshore renewables (MOR) sector are being invited to an industry event in October.
Called ‘MOR Opportunity Knocks’, the event at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth on October 1 will focus on how businesses can tap into a market that is said could be worth £4.5 billion to the south west economy by 2030.
Andrew Williams, renewable energy lead on the board of the Cornwall and Isles of Scilly Local Enterprise Partnership, says: “Marine renewable energy is a global opportunity for our economy and there are already many businesses and organisations in the region that are exporting their services and expertise around the world.
“We want to ensure that businesses are aware of the opportunities that already exist and those that are emerging, both here and overseas. Recent investment in testing and research facilities, especially in Cornwall and Plymouth, put us in pole position to capitalise on a dynamic and growing sector that plays to our marine and engineering strengths.”
The free event is being held on Wednesday 1st October at the Maritime Museum in Falmouth.
