The smart energy & electric vehicle cluster leading the way on battery development

21st October 2020

With cutting-edge materials research and development, ambitious businesses working on innovative battery solutions, smart grid devices and electric vehicles, and vast quantities of renewable power generated off the coast of Norfolk and Suffolk, the East of England will play a key role in the energy supply chain of the future and provides the ideal location to develop, test and deploy new technologies.

The Cambridge Norwich Tech Corridor harnesses the strengths of the energy sector, as well as the game-changing work going on in life science, artificial intelligence and agri-tech across the region, to create a super-cluster with the potential to add £2.75bn to the UK economy over the next decade.

It’s strategic location, close to world-leading research in Cambridge and Norwich, makes it an ideal place to scale and grow a technology business, while direct regular connections to London and Amsterdam put the region at the centre of the booming European tech scene. What’s more, the East’s natural beauty makes it an attractive destination for employees seeking a rewarding career and a high quality of life.
