NewAnglia Skills Manifesto – Skills for Energy case study



Description of the practice

Skills for Energy focuses on delivering skilled people to the industry when they are needed, for long-term careers and ensuring the existing workforce continues to meet the industry’s needs into the future.

It is centred on addressing core skills needs across all energy sectors, both technical and commercial, achieved through collaborative partnerships including education, academia and other support organisations.

Policy context

The East of England Energy Group (EEEGR) is the industry association for energy in the East of England, representing over 400 members across the supply chain. They are a non-profit, business-led group committed to the sustained development of the energy sector in the East of England and the continued success of their members. They host the industry-led “Skills For Energy” partnership.

Labour market context

A number of organisations are working to support the growing energy industry and maximise the potential opportunities to ensure they benefit the local area, companies and people. This means putting foundations in place to build strong and sustained employment around nuclear, onshore and offshore energy as well as providing routes of access into the industry and supporting and developing the existing workforce.


The Energy Production Innovation Skills Centre (EPISCentre) aims to be a centre of excellence for energy industry training and will provide a local base where companies can train the workforce rather than sending them elsewhere. This will help to enhance the region’s reputation, attracting energy companies to bring further investment to the local area as well as support the growth of local companies.
The Norfolk and Suffolk Energy Alliance (NSEA) is a public/private partnership that is seeking to maximise energy sector investment in Norfolk and Suffolk. It is developing a supply chain strategy for the two counties and involves public and private sectors working together to bring investment for skills and innovation across the locality.
