Welcome to Eastern Wind Energy Group
If the UK economy is to significantly benefit from the investment we will be making in Wind Turbines, we have to establish the capability to manufacture them within the UK.
Round 3 investments in offshore UK wind farms will be round £80 - 100 billion over the next 10 – 15 years.
Such an industry should generate at least 4,000 jobs and could build the platform to build an industry, creating up to 30,000.
Eastern Wind Energy Group (EWEG) has the potential capability and capacity amongst its network to design, build and supply components to the wind industry, capturing economic value and stimulating job creation in a strategically vital sector for the region.
Beyond round 3 the UK possesses a high percentage of Europe’s high quality developable offshore area; therefore it is likely that this high investment level will continue far beyond round 3.
Currently all turbines and the majority of components are imported into the UK; therefore investment does not benefit the UK economy that it could.
